In School Workshops

  

 
Back by popular demand, our new wind turbines activity allows pupils to learn how a wind turbine works, how they are engineered and constructed. Working in small teams, pupils use our redesigned wind turbine model kits to build and measure energy generated. By adjusting their design, each team is tasked to create and record the most efficient wind turbine.

 

 
In this BBC Micro:bit workshop, pupils are guided through a series of challenges where they will write code using Javascript or Python (dependant on ability) to move a Microbit robot through a series of tasks. Pupils will then program a transmitter and receiver to create a remote controlled robot to compete with one another, adjusting their code throughout to improve their robot's performance.

 

 
EESW Speed Challenge is a fantastic two-hour taster session where pupils get to have a glimpse into the exciting world of F1 in Schools! This whole class workshop gets pupils working in teams to build cars and race them on our purpose-built track to see which team has produced the fastest F1 car.

This session is perfect for year 7 students and we can accommodate up to 30 pupils per workshop.

 
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.


 

STEM Projects

  

 
Would you like your school to be a part of this global STEM project? Welcome to F1 in Schools!

Making your own F1 car has never been easier! Using our series of short & easy guides, pupils can learn the basics of CAD to design, create and render their own F1 in Schools car. Let EESW support you as you enter the world of F1.

Fusion 360 CAD software is free to download.

 
FLL is a global science and technology competition for teams of students, to encourage an interest in real world issues and develop key skills that are crucial for their future careers.  The students work together as a team and explore a given scientific topic and plan, program and test an autonomous robot to solve several missions.  

FLL Challenge is for young people aged 9 to 16 years, working in teams of up to ten with a supporting mentor.

 
Our latest blended learning STEM Project challenges teams of students to design, build and program their own smart micro-greenhouse. EESW will deliver coding sessions, alongside full class packs including programmable BBC Micro:bits, environmental control boards, sensors and components, plus how-to guides, videos & cross curricular lesson plans.

Everything required for a successful KS3 project is provided.

Free Online Resources

  

 
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!

 

 
Introduce hardware to your coding skills with our Coding with Micro:bit tutorials. Following our video tutorials, pupils can use the micro:bit’s built in sensors and household items to create functioning games!

Requires BBC Micro:bit. Class packs of 10 micro:bits can be loaned from EESW.
