STEM Case Studies

Cross-Curriculum Cooperation in Product Design

Students often seem uncomfortable when confronted with a science teacher talking about mathematics in a science lesson or a design and technology teacher talking about science in a design and technology lesson.

Karen Laws, a secondary science teacher at Hinchingbrooke School who had trained as a primary teacher, had observed that students viewed lessons as isolated and stand alone with respect to curriculum areas.

When the opportunity to research these observations became available, she was inspired to try and find out more about making links and if this could support students in their studies.
