The Faculty of Engineering at Imperial College London is committed to inspiring young people to share our passion for engineering, mathematics and science.
By inspiring pupils at primary school to understand engineering we hope that we can motivate these young minds to help shape the future of engineering and solve some of the world's most significant challenges.
Enjoyment and passion is key to understanding, and we are developing engaging resources, which we will be piloting in a number of primary school classes.
Primary teaching resources (pilot project)
A pilot project is underway that will see the creation of teaching resources focused on the needs of schools and teachers.
The Faculty of Engineering is working with Colchester Royal Grammar School and linked primary schools to develop teaching resources for classroom practitioners and strengthen passion for engineering among young children.
Teachers from Colchester Royal Grammar School have been working with four affiliated primary schools to identify areas where new resources would be most beneficial. The Faculty of Engineering will now be supporting these teachers in the next phase of this project to develop a suite of targeted activities.
Our belief is that by providing teachers with connections between their curricula and cutting-edge research we can help them to engage their students and promote deep understanding of these critical STEM subjects.
Activities for secondary schools
A number of Early Career Researchers from within the Faculty have also been involved in developing and teaching workshops within the Wohl Reach Out Lab, a number of which were developed in partnership with teachers as part of the Reaching Further programme. More details on this can be found on Reaching Further Website.
The Faculty Outreach Champion is Professor George Constantinides.
