Title - Research and Design Teaching Set
Engineering Technology - Research and Design Teaching Set
The Research and Design package offers practical learning opportunities, to investigate the role science and technology plays in research and design.

Learners develop an understanding of how STEM impacts our world, through the context of a modern mass transit system based upon a maglev train simulation.

The trainer can also be used in conjunction with our Optional Cloud-based Software , which offers online practical electronics tasks as well as interactive theory presentations, investigations, and assessments, which link directly to the practical activities carried out using this resource.

Typical Practical Activities Include:
  • Identify transportation issues as problems that a Research and Design project might attempt to solve.
  • Extract information to create a formal list of specifications for a Design Brief.
  • Investigate and Research Transportation technologies.
  • Use the Internet to research information about the fuels used in Propulsion Systems.
  • Use a virtual laboratory to test materials for use in making electrical contacts.
  • Measure the force created by a model vehicle crashing.
  • Design a buffer to be used with a model Maglev vehicle.
  • Discover how computers are used to control automatic operations.
  • Reduce the fares paid by passengers using a Maglev transportation system.
Items Included:
  • Maglev Track
  • 2 Maglev Vehicles
  • Maglev Control Interface Unit
  • Maglev Connection Lead and Power Supply Set
  • Buffer Design Consumable Pack
  • Maglev Control Software and Simulation CDROM
  • Parallel to USB Adapter
