Vehicle Project Registration
We are supported by regional industry funders to provide professional development for up to two teachers, two sets of physical classroom resources, digital teaching resources and face to face celebration events in support of placing engineering in the classroom within the curriculum’s requirements.
The Vehicle Project will enable you to deliver a whole-class, curriculum-mapped engineering project and be partnered with a professional engineer in the area to work with you on the training day and after with pupils in the classroom.
Based on our original ‘STEM by Stealth’ programme, this project provides children Primary School with the opportunity to engage in exciting practical Maths and Literacy investigations, using engineering as the vehicle.
Kits are sent into the class so children can create a working model and get a hands on experience on what it means to be an engineer.
- Professional development training for two teachers (one from from Key Stage 1/Lower primary and one from Key Stage 2/Upper primary).
- Understanding how to use the tools and resources provided with the course for use in the classrooms.
- Models made on the course to be taken as exemplars for use in class.
- Awareness of the teaching resources available and how to engage an engineer to contextualise the learning.
- Meet your curriculum requirements for D&T and focus science, maths and literacy skills.
- Improve resilience, problem-solving, through the creative design process.
- Improved confidence in designing and making products that are fit for purpose.
- Learn how to integrate simple electric circuits into a working models.
