CLWB is delighted to announce the publication of STEM ‘Master Class’ videos for Pearson China.
Working to Pearson’s Project STEM template, CLWB created 5.5 hours worth of instructional material which is sold with Pearson’s Project STEM books in China.
CLWB worked with Park House School, and Kintbury St Mary’s CE Primary School, Berkshire, UK to create the videos.
The videos are being used to train teachers in China how to teach Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) using Project Based Learning methods. Each demonstration covered STEM theory followed by a design & make tasks designed to develop 21st Century Skills such as how to think critically, solve problems, work in teams, and make presentations.
In all, three sets of videos were produced:
Building a bug box
Designing a Water Purification System
Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics
Topics covered include:
- Animal structures and adaptations
- Body structures and survival needs
- Physical and chemical properties, and organisation of matter
- Motion and Forces
- Material technologies
- Removing rubbish and pollution from the sea and rivers
- Controlling Forces
- Strength-to-Weight rations
- Construction Principles
- Environmental, Chemical, Biochemical, Hydraulic, Marine and Optical Engineering
- Engineering Design Process
- Engineering Drawing
- Materials and their properties
- Distributing loads and forces
- Measuring with the metric system
- Data collection and analysis
CLWB delivered a ‘360 degree solution’ covering the entire video production process from storyboarding to graphics, to subtitles.
