Our free key stage 3 and key stage 4 teaching resources will help bring science to life, through the inspiring, real life context of INEOS TEAM UK’s challenge for the America’s Cup, the Formula 1 of international sailing.
Science provides the foundations for students to understand the world around them, through the core concepts of chemistry, biology, and physics. During KS3 and KS4, students learn how science has changed our lives and the crucial role it will play in our future, as well as the essential knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science.
With STEM Crew resources, you will be able to connect real-world, engaging scenarios with scientific topics including energy stores and transfers, mechanisms, nutrition, and speed, distance, and time, to engage your students and make the subject more fun to encourage learning.
We offer a range of resources to help make teaching science more exciting for both you and your students.
Teaching speed, distance, and time in the context of the British America’s Cup team, INEOS TEAM UK, students will learn how races are calculated using the wind speed, distances, and wind direction.
Another great science resource focuses on mechanisms, covering the relationship between force, area, and pressure, in the real-life context of how levers, pulleys, gears, and hydraulics are used to steer the boat.
Each resource includes a main video to introduce the topics, the context, and the challenge or learning. It also includes a variety of worksheets, practical investigations, and tasks that will allow students to explore the different scientific challenges and questions these real-life scenarios pose.
