Free STEM lesson plans launched for teachers

Electronics company RS Components has released a series of free, curriculum-aligned STEM resources for teachers

RS Components has launched Imagine-X, a series of free, curriculum-aligned STEM resources to help primary and secondary teachers inspire pupils.

Current lesson plans cover biomechanical engineering for both primary and secondary pupils, and are available to download for free. There is also a lesson presentation available for both levels, and a worksheet for primary.

The biomechanical engineering resources focus on how technology can be used to develop prosthetics, and the wider concept of using technology to improve people’s lives.

Resources are available for pupils aged 7–14, and have been developed with help from real primary and secondary school teachers, education experts and students from key stages 2 and 3.

Mike England, president EMEA at RS Components, said: “STEM skills act as the perfect platform to a more socially mobile and globally impactful life. They broaden horizons, empower the disadvantaged and diversify life choices. But many young people have yet to see the bigger impact these skills could have on the world.

“We hope the Imagine-X resources will enable teachers and educators to bring STEM subjects to life in meaningful and engaging way, and help ignite the imagination of millions of young people in primary and secondary education.”

The resources can be downloaded for free from the RS Components STEM hub.
