The modelling learning journey is for teaching about research, design and modelling in the context of electric transport, specifically focusing on the eRally car project.
A project initiated by former British Rally Championship competitors to bring about a radical change in the perception of electric vehicles by showcasing clean technology through motorsport.
In this journey, learners build up knowledge and skills through a curriculum focus on technologies. The lesson ideas allow them to see the purpose and relevance of learning about the design of products that meet particular needs, for example, for safety, and how that knowledge is applied. Learners could then apply these skills to an engineering challenge where they are asked to design and build a battery-powered car to certain criteria. This learning context would provide rich opportunities for planning with other departments such as sciences for interdisciplinary learning.
There are rich opportunities to work with partners in this journey by inviting in a STEM ambassador or someone from a local business to help learners gain insights into the world of work.
