Aeronautical Engineering

Ages 11-14
First released 2018

These free resources have been developed with the support of the ERA Foundation, to help students understand roles and career paths into the industry. For many young people the different roles and career paths in engineering are not apparent and this will help illustrate these and some of the learning and skills needed to follow a career in this sector.

These resources include a teacher guide and a series of PowerPoint based challenges for Key Stage 3 pupils in which they develop solutions in related areas. There are also video interviews with eight engineers with different roles, background information available here.

The eight engineers are presented as drawn characters, offering challenges to:

  • Understand the principles of flight by making a glider that flies the furthest
  • Powered flight: adding power to make it fly further and test other factors
  • Drone mountain rescue: programming drones to fly to and from locations in a controlled way
  • Use engineering drawing to draw and model an aircraft wing.

The challenges can be adapted and developed into research, design-only, or design and make projects to suit your school and pupils.

The resources are free to download. They may also be downloaded here, where you can view and download the videos.

Prices include VAT at the appropriate rate where applicable, postage and packing for UK only. For overseas postage please call us.
