NAMIG Inc Curriculum Development Awards (NICDA)

NICDA awards are allocated to teachers at C2C schools to facilitate curriculum development that enhances the C2C program for industry and schools alike. Past recipients are Riverton & District High School and Valley View Secondary School.

Some of the valuable resources that have been developed through these awards can be downloaded below and may be helpful in managing or developing a project.

Also visit the Engineering & Advanced Manufacturing page in this section for real world examples of engineering feats, including video clips and useful PowerPoint presentations.


Project Management Tools

It goes without saying that project management is a key factor to the success or otherwise of any project. The NAMIG Coordination Team has developed a series of simple project management tools that can be downloaded below.

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 


BAE Systems

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
