This project explores how through a partnership approach between primary and secondary teachers, and University engineers we can respond to the project question:
How do we embrace engineering education and an ethos of tinkering using computer science, design and technology and the science curriculum?
The proposition is that together (teachers, curriculum developers, engineers and enthusiasts) we can develop, trial and refine learning approaches/experiences that can work to ‘plug’ the gaps in school classroom practice so that computer science is actively and genuinely used to enhance science and technology, and indeed make real ‘what it means to be an engineer’.
