Description

To support you to deliver the activities in the Teacher’s Guide, we’ve provided some additional activity sheets. Krystina Pearson-Rampeearee, an Aerospace Engineer, is just one of forty-six engineers featured in this engaging book.

Her love for engineering began at childhood, spending countless hours building things and pulling them apart to see how they worked – not to mention the curiosity she developed through watching her father, who was a mechanical and electrical engineer. Imperial’s Virtual Reality Student Experience (ViRSE) is helping students learn through, and develop their talents in, VR technology. A school kit will be sent free of charge to every secondary school in the UK in Spring 2023, comprising of two copies of the print book (one for classroom use and one for the school’s library), an educator’s guide which aligns with the national curriculum, a laminated timeline for classrooms, illustrating engineering feats that have shaped the world over time and 12 posters for use in the classroom, showing fun topics about each chapter in the book. Over the past ten years or so, I have spent a lot of my time telling others about the excitement of engineering and the vast variety of careers it opens up.Somara’s expertise in fluid dynamics has led her to speak at academic conferences on the ‘built environment’. Meet Prof Kyrgiou's group in the Department of Metabolism, Digestion and Reproduction, who are working tirelessly to eliminate the disease. This graphic novel takes on controversial topics like climate change and fracking to separate the truth from the fiction in a fun but informative way.

Profiles of world-changing men and women show that science and technology is accessible for all and challenge engineering stereotypes.

Somara is keen to break down traditional stereotypes around STEM by celebrating the work of female and transgender engineers, engineers from different countries and of different ethnicities, and engineers with autism and dyslexia who describe how their neurodiversity has helped them in their careers; hopefully any child reading this book would feel empowered by seeing someone from a similar background to them featured.
