STEM Ambassador Support: Diversity
This information sheet, from the Royal Academy of Engineering, provides teachers with a challenges to stereotyping activity. Some students may not understand what engineering involves, others may be fully engaged in another subject, while for some engineering may appear too hard or culturally irrelevant. By using this resource teachers should have a good chance of inspiring all young people, regardless of their background, to see engineering and technology as positively beneficial to their present and future lives. The information sheet looks at potential barriers and with the aid of three case studies shows how these can be overcome.
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.
