Engineering Interact

The Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge is currently producing web-based educational science material wrapped-up in a game environment. The aim is to promote science and engineering at National Curriculum Key Stage 2 (Years 5 & 6) science and technology.

Key points:

- It’s free!

- Covers the Physical Processes and Scientific Enquiry.

- Fully interactive and fun.

- Can be used as an introduction, summary or revision tool, either in game or teacher mode.

- Flexible use: as a group activity if you have an interactive whiteboard or projector; or individually or in pairs if not.

- Extra skills developed: ICT, working as a team, planning, decision making.

- Easy to use: requires minimal technical experience.

We've tried to address some of the pitfalls of web-based resources, whilst offering high-quality and fun material. We'd love to know what you think of the site - all feedback and comments are most welcome.

Kind regards,

Peter Stidwill


Cambridge University Department of Engineering
