From gliders and vacuum cleaners to mechanical toys and floating platforms, you will be amazed by what you (and your pupils!) are able to achieve.

Course Outcomes
  • How to use engineering to promote problem solving, teamwork and communication skills in pupils
  • Introduction to the engineer design process
  • Practical ideas for implementation in the classroom
