Tomorrow's Engineers EEP Robotics Challenge

Tomorrow's Engineers EEP Robotics Challenge

Schools across the UK are invited to take part in a robotics challenge that will see student teams involved in ‘aviation missions’. You can run activities and lessons with your team during school time or as an extracurricular activity. This is a programme that gets your students (11-14s) working together to solve real-world engineering, technology and computing challenges. Your student team will learn how to build, program and control autonomous LEGO® robots to complete a series of short, exciting aviation missions using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 sets. From speed racing to humanitarian aid, they’ll demonstrate their skills at challenges held around the country. The journey starts in your school and could take your team all the way from regional heats to the national final. You’ll have our help along the way, with training and equipment.

Design a Space Station: Physics of Aerodynamics, Flight & Space

Design a Space Station: Physics of Aerodynamics, Flight & Space

The “Aerodynamics, Flight & Sustainable Life” project utilizes research skills, MS PowerPoint, and Sketchup (free CAD software download) to allow students to build skills in those programs along with skills in Internet research, reading, writing and critical thinking. In these projects, students research information about the history of aerodynamics, Newton’s Laws of flight and the physics behind them. They replicate a scale model drawing of a NASA space vehicle using Sketchup (CAD) and then research and design their own space station or community that will fully sustain life in space. The project was created for grades 7-8 but could easily be adapted for younger or older students. Files Included with this Lesson • Teacher Notes and Resources • Aerodynamics History PowerPoint project Expectations and Grading Rubric • Newton’s Laws Research Questions (includes answer key) • Recreating a NASA Space Vehicle in Sketchup Project Expectations and Grading Rubric • Project Samples for NASA Vehicle • Designing a Space Station or Community in Sketchup Project Expectations and Grading Rubric • Project Samples for Space Station/Community
