The University of South Australia
Download a copy of the David Cropley's presenation from the 2011 Conceptual Design Workshop This comprehensive presentation on systems engineering provides project management tools which are invaluable in coming to grips with project based learning.
Use this photograph of the components of a car to demonstrate to students that engineering projects, from suspension bridges to electronic gadgets, are made up of systems and sub-systems. How many systems and sub-systems can the students identify from the photograph?
CSIRO CREST Awards Program
Your students C2C Project can can be used as part of CSIRO's Crest Awards Program where students develop an appreciation of science and technology research through undertaking real-life open-ended science and technology research projects
Project 21 / Concept2Creation
A great resource for NAMIG's C programme for primary and middle years or as an introduction to the UAV project.
Coles Distribution Centre
Coles Distribution worked in collaboration with a teacher working under a NICDA grant from NAMIG to commence building a range of activities. The intention is that these activities draw upon the logistics operation at the Coles Distribution Centre in Edinburgh to create a context for possible Mathematics and Science related tasks
