National Science & Engineering Week

  1. Has anyone planned anything to do in school for this week? I have been put in charge of organising it for the whole department and I am trying to come up with some good ideas.
    I have checked out the official website but didn't find it much use to be honest.
    Any ideas would be much appreciated.
    Thanks [​IMG]

  3. Hi there
    we use the theme as a basis and plan a series of lessons that can delivered to KS3 classes in their normal science lesson time. This year we are getting pupils in years 7 + 8 building, testing and improving rubber band cars, while year 9s are building windmills and seeing how changing the number + size of sails affects the electricity generated. They both take a bit of advance planning but should be fun.

    If you get them working in small groups and have small prizes/certs at the end it can generate quite a bit of excitement.
    Have fun!
