An Adventure at Sea

The 2015 Maritime Growth Study commissioned by the government indicated a lack of awareness of the importance of the maritime sector to everyday living in the UK.  Despite being an island nation many young people have little idea of the breadth of career opportunities that exist across the maritime sector.

In response to this report South Tyneside Marine School, with funding from the Maritime Educational Foundation, contracted eLearning Works Ltd. to create an elearning package to raise awareness of the maritime industry to the primary sector.

The resource is STEM based and is freely available here.

All entries were judged on originality; reach & inclusivity of pupils, parents, stakeholders and community; the ability to factor in staff involvement/training; ease of implementation; and differentiation incorporated to help support Gatsby benchmark 3, addressing the needs of each pupil.

The package has been approved by STEM Learning and has featured in their monthly eNewsletter and STEM Learning termly magazine. The project has also been showcased at the Association for Science Education at their annual conference at York University.
