This KS3 virtual live lesson on 5 March explains the future of sustainable transport, what tech is used, and what careers are available in this sector.
Do your students ever talk about electric cars, drones or electric bikes? Could they see themselves working in a future career using or designing sustainable transport?
Join Tech She Can on Tuesday 5 March at 11:00 am, and watch their Learning Design and Development Officer (and experienced teacher), Rachael Lilley, deliver a virtual 60 minute Tech We Can LIVE lesson for children aged 11-13.
This will be an interactive session where the students will be guided to complete paper based tasks and partner discussions - they therefore need to be based at a table with a piece of paper and pen/pencil.
Rachael will highlight the importance of sustainable transport for now and in the future. She will also show some of the tech careers within transport and related areas that students could pursue in the future.
The content is ideal for a Key Stage 3 lesson (S1 - S2 in Scotland) in the classroom environment or from home. Simply complete the registration form to reserve your spot and you will receive a link to join the live lesson.
This session is being delivered to complement National Careers Week. National Careers Week is a 1-week celebration of careers guidance and free resources in education across the UK. The aim is to provide a focus for careers guidance activity at an important stage in the academic calendar to help support young people develop awareness about future career options.
Please join from 10:45am onwards. Webinar access will be locked at 11:15am.
