MOVING ENGINEERING PROJECT
FLUX is delighted to bring a brand new project to primary and secondary schools with the generous support of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).
Moving Engineering combines movement & dance with coding, programming and communication technologies to engage students in Science Technology Engineering & Maths (STEM).
Use the Arts as a platform to engage students who have relatively little affinity to STEM
Encourage teachers to continue cross-curricular learning as a pathway to STEM
Strengthen students’ communication, creative thinking and social skills
The project will initially pan Warwickshire in the summer term with a selection of schools spread geographically across the county, in both urban and rural areas.
We hope to then offer this project to schools throughout the UK.
