STEM Ambassador Support: The Engineering Message
Produced by the Royal Academy of Engineering, this information sheet is aimed at helping teachers send a positive message across to students who can often feel that engineering has ‘nothing to do with me’. Many students do not realise that engineering is a very broad area. Much of what people buy, own, wear, eat and do has been influenced by engineers. Engineering is essential to health, happiness and safety. The best way to get this message across is for students to look at how engineering impacts on their lives and this is achieved with the aid of two case studies and some key ideas.
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.
