Welcome your students back with our STEM Theme Day. Designed for 11-14 year-olds, this new resource includes everything you need to collapse your timetable to investigate 3 'Big Questions'. Students will put themselves in the shoes of INEOS TEAM UK members and take on fun...

In this lesson we explore the effect of balanced and unbalanced forces on movement. We ask the big question of how does the INEOS TEAM UK race boat manage to accelerate up to speeds of 60 mph powered only by the wind? Students carry out a...

In this lesson we explore balanced forces and how buoyancy force is affected by the salinity of water and its relevance to INEOS TEAM UK’s race boat. Students carry out a practical investigation into how forces affect an object in water, and one factor that can...

In this lesson, we explore friction and its relevance to INEOS TEAM UK’s race boat and sailors. Friction: friend or foe? This lesson is one in a series of five exploring Forces through practical investigations linked to the real-life exciting context of the British America’s Cup...

In this lesson we ask, “What happens when materials aren’t strong enough?” The resource includes: a video introduction to forces and their importance to INEOS TEAM UK, a comprehensive editable teacher PowerPoint presentation, including teaching notes and a student planed practical investigation. In the practical, students...

This introductory Forces video is designed to be used as a short introduction to the five lesson resources that look at specific areas of forces in more detail. Whilst it is not a lesson in itself, it helps set the scene as to what forces...

NEW! Remote Learning Resources 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...

Through the exciting context of the British challenge for the America's Cup  supported by the Lloyd's Register Foundation archives, this teaching resource explores composite and nano materials for GCSE and KS3 Design Technology and Engineering as well as supporting the nanoparticles element of the science...

The resources will cover the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) requirements for KS3 & GCSE Science (Chemistry) and DT. The America’s Cup, known as the F1 of sailing features LCA as part of the Protocol (rules) for the Cup. Using the real life and engaging context of the British America’s...

This biology and food topic uses the real-life context of the British America's Cup team INEOS TEAM UK. This topic introduces the topic of nutrition with a short starter film, discussing how energy requirements vary depending on activity levels, for example, the boat crew v's....

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...
