*Remote Learning Projects*

(6)

We have put together a series of 6 student projects which can be used either in the classroom or at home. These projects are based on the concept of Big Questions.

A Big Question is a way of guiding pupils to make links between distinct subject areas and relate them to the world around them. We have chosen 6 Big Questions and added the resources your pupils will need to be able to form a detailed and considered response.

Energy stores and transfers

(7)

This Physics topic uses the real-life context of the British America’s Cup team INEOS TEAM UK to introduce the concept of energy. It examines the different ways in which energy can be stored and transferred and how this relates to the performance of the boat and crew.

Life Cycle Assessment

(8)

Using the real life and engaging context of the British America’s Cup Team, INEOS TEAM UK – students will learn that all products are likely to have some negative impact on the environment.

Mechanisms

(7)

This Physics and Design and Technology topic covers the relationship between force, area and pressure. It uses the context of the British Americas Cup team INEOS TEAM UK to illustrate calculating values in a hydraulic pressure system and demonstrates the use of hydraulics on the racing boats.

Modern Materials

(11)

Amaze your class by making flexible glass fibre in front of their eyes. Through the exciting context of the America’s Cup sailing, supported by the Lloyds Register Foundation archives, this teaching resource explores composite and nano materials for Design Technology and Engineering as well as supporting the nanoparticles element of the Science curriculum.

Nutrition

(7)

This topic supports the learning required for Biology, PE and Food Technology. It uses the real-life context of the British America’s Cup team INEOS TEAM UK to introduce the topic of nutrition. The topic covers the components of a healthy diet and why they are needed, using the different roles within the team to demonstrate how energy requirements vary acording to activity level. Students go on to calculate the energy provided in a daily meal plan.

Speed, distance, time

(8)

This Maths and Science topic uses the real-life context of the British America’s Cup team INEOS TEAM UK and covers interpreting distance-time graphs, drawing distance-time graphs from given data and defining speed as the distance covered in a set time.

Virtual Tech Deck

(2)

Take a virtual tour of our Tech Deck through four short videos which explore some of the science and cutting edge technologies that go into making a winning America’s Cup boat and Team.
