Engineering a Better World

The Academy's engineering-themed learning and teaching resources have been developed in partnership with teachers and engineers to engage and inspire students about a career in engineering.  

For schools, the resources are linked to the KS2 and KS3 STEM curriculum and can easily be adapted for use at KS4.  The resources provide engineering-themed learning activities for use in a STEM club, for a STEM challenge day or to enhance and add context to the STEM curriculum.  An important aim of each resource is to enable teachers or club leaders to engage their students with STEM through hands-on activity and stimulating engineering contexts.

In post-16, there are a suite of interactive engineering contextualised resources for technician level courses, in particular mechanical and electrical principles, and are appropriate for use at Level 2 and 3.  Each resource contains a stretch and challenge activity.
