These resources include five projects which aim to inspire D&T and Science teachers to run collaborative projects between the two subjects and ensure that you can successfully deliver a STEM project to enhance the learning of your students. These examples were first taught by D&T teachers, however all rely on knowledge, resources and equipment from Science departments.
Each has an introductory page, summaries of the D&T, Science and Maths aspects covered, details of the project and the school’s experience of planning an delivering it.
- Sound and Vision – Year 9 A product design and electronics project where students produce an mp3 amplifier kit and study sound waves before making a it into a portable speaker unit.
