  • Awesome Athletes Project – The Science and Engineering of Movement (University of Nottingham)

    Science, Engineering. Key stages 1, 2 and 3.  Awesome Athletes is an initiative that has been developed to encourage primary and KS3 teachers to discover and develop exciting, problem-solving and hands-on learning for children through a cross-curricular theme of movement.  Movement of both animal and machine is explored and the pupils have to try and meet the challenge of finding information and possible solutions to a rather large alien problem. For 2008-9 it has taken up the challenge of the science and engineering of movement that lies behind road safety using a hands-on and investigative approach.
