The Science with Technology Project Management unit, from the Association for Science Education and the Design and Technology Association, introduces students to some of the techniques and skills that can help people to manage projects more effectively. It was developed in collaboration with experts in the company Brown and Root as part of the Toolkit produced by the project.
The first part of the unit takes students through a series of activities to teach them the techniques of project management. Advice is given on how students can use these techniques to manage their own projects and assignments. In the second part of the unit students are taken through a process to plan and carry out a research enquiry which could include practical investigations. This provides information and data to support their project or assignment.

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.
