Since our last update the Strathclyde PDP team have completed research and generated a number of initial concepts. They’ve visited schools and the Teaching Department at the University of Strathclyde. It was a surprise to find that schools will no longer be teaching classes as Standard Grades. Instead there is a new curriculum – Curriculum for Excellence. This means that the team might have to change the brief a wee bit to better suit the future educational environment.
We’ve also looked at existing resource packs/projects offered by relevant companies, and related projects such as:
- Royal Academy of Engineering’s STEM
- Scalextrics’ Scalextrics 4 Schools
- The James Dyson Foundation
- Lego Engineering
- Bloodhound SSC
