The Royal Academy of Engineering
The Royal Academy of Engineering oversees a number of projects to enhance and enrich the teaching of engineering. This collection contains case studies and details of activities which can be used to encourage pupils to take part in engineering study.
The collection includes:
• Mathematics for Engineering Exemplars: These exemplars give activities which contextualise mathematics in engineering projects for Post-16 students. The activities support the Additional and Specialist Learning (ASL) unit of the Advanced Diploma in Engineering.
• London Engineering Project Case Studies: These case studies describe 14 projects set up with the aim of engaging and inspiring young people in STEM subjects, with an emphasis on engineering. The projects included activity days for students led by STEM Ambassadors, careers advice for teachers, reports on best practice and events designed to encourage under-represented groups, especially girls.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
The Royal Academy of Engineering and STEMNET have developed a suite of high quality engineering based resources for use in STEM Clubs and by STEM Ambassadors. Developed with teachers, the new resources will inspire future generations to follow careers in engineering. The resources are grouped in two sub collections: STEM Club…
These Mathematics for Engineering exemplars are intended to motivate mathematics teaching and learning, provide support for teachers using contextualised mathematics for the first time, and help students gain fluency in the use of mathematics for practical problem solving. This collection from The Royal Academy of Engineering also…
The London Engineering Project (LEP) set up projects with London South Bank University to engage young people in STEM subjects. These case studies describe the projects, their backgrounds and activities. The projects are: • Engineering Islam • Engineering pick 'n' mix • Engineering summer school •…
