Discover the theory of flight with this hands-on workshop. Pupils will explore how planes stay in the air through forces and innovative design, before creating their very own small plane. They will then carry out an investigation to see how they can change their plane's design to change how it flies!
Resources and session delivery available online.
A careers session with a difference! Introduce your pupils to the broad field of engineering careers with this engaging activity. Pupils are given a branch of engineering to discover, which they will use to create a profile of an engineer to share with their classmates.
All resources and session delivery available online.
Get started with learning to code with our fun Scratch tutorials! EESW's step by step video guides start at the very beginning and allow pupils to explore and build a range of coding skills.
Using the online Scratch editor pupils will create their own games and more! You only need a computer or tablet!
A teacher led lesson resource, to be delivered as part of your curriculum, or an extension to our Wind Turbines workshop. This resource considers rotation & transmission of forces through gears. Including online resources, videos & worksheets, pupils discover how to calculate gear ratios of simple and complicated layouts, direction of rotation, patterns, and calculating ratios. Pupils are introduced to torque and velocity and gain an understanding of the two.
A teacher led lesson resource, to be delivered as part of your curriculum, or an extension to our Wind Turbines workshop, this activity introduces Ohm’s Law. Pupils learn about voltage, current & resistance and how they interact in electrical circuits and the importance of Ohm’s Law. After deriving the formula of current, resistance and voltage, pupils complete an accompanying worksheet. Pupils then get creative and produce their own analogy or way to explain Ohm’s Law to their friends!
