Year 8 Students are just starting to embark on their Nuffield STEM Futures Project.
STEM = Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.
They can shoose from 8 different research topics, ranging from re-designing household projects, or clothes, how we can use alternate energy sources.
They will need to think about local, regional, national, and global issues and impact.
Their class boxes are being stored in the MRC and are collected at the beginning of each of their lessons.
To support this teaching and learning I have created a display with books from around the MRC, and have included QR codes.
These QR codes link either to a sample of the websites and videos available via Oliver or to two of my podcasts – one explaining Dewey and the MRC layout, and the other demonstrates how to use the Subject Index.
Early days so far but it has already been handled.
I do encourage students to touch and borrow these resources.
