Activity Case Study 8: Chris Robbins
In this STEMNET activity case study, STEM Ambassador Chris Robbins describes how he works with children and teachers on projects such as building a musical dinosaur crest out of plumbing materials. This gave pupils hands-on engineering experience and an understanding of acoustics.
"You have to learn to relate things to other people’s worlds and abilities. It’s a challenge but it’s really satisfying when you get it right. Kids are really good fun to work with. You’ll laugh together, get great feedback, and walk out with a really warm feeling!”
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.
