STEM Pack 4: Bringing Engineering to Life

STEM Pack 4 – Bringing Engineering to Life

Science; Engineering; Careers

Years: Year 7; Year 8; Year 9


Students explore the latest STEM careers – the science and scientists – through videos, research and discussion.

The aim of each STEM Careers Pack is twofold: first, to make students aware of the wide variety of STEM careers there are and; secondly, to help students understand the nature of scientific knowledge, how science influences society and how society influences science (i.e. Science as a Human Endeavour).

During their explorations students will also appreciate how the different areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics interact and are interdependent. They will develop their own STEM literacies and competencies.

In STEM Pack 4: Bringing Engineering to Life students learn broadly about engineering and that there are many types; as well as considering and appreciating the important role of engineering today, throughout history and into the future. This pack can be delivered alongside the Biological, Chemical or Earth & Space Sciences strands of the National Curriculum dependent on teacher choice, looking at the science behind the work of chemical and civil engineers e.g. GM (genetically modified) crops, medicines, bridges or drainage systems. (see P4 for more details on this) and all tasks are mapped to Science as a Human Endeavour as well as the core capabilities.
