STEM Activity, combining Design Technology, Science and engineering.
Taking inspiration directly from the amazing story of the man who built his baby son an intuitive prosthetic arm, this lesson combines biology, design technology and engineering to give an insight into the exciting world of biomechanical engineering. With an important life lesson about the difference prosthetics can make to the lives of those who need them, this cross-curricular two-part lesson will awaken pupil’s passion for using technical skills to help those in need.
Find out how the Helping Hands, Making Hands Lesson Plan will help children understand the science of Biomechanics. They will learn about the movement of the body and the impact of losing a limb through birth or injury. How can this be addressed through the use of prosthetics and what STEM skills can be used to make a big difference in someone’s life?
