Resources for schools and home learning (Secondary school and beyond)

Our Secondary School resource is primarily recommended for KS4 as it includes an underlying knowledge of the GCSE curriculum , however it can adapted to both younger and older age groups.

This resource will cover:

  • Jobs and opportunities linked to the battery sector, this is part of the Gatsby benchmark for good career guidance: https://www.gatsby.org.uk/education/focus-areas/good-career-guidance

Instructions – Printing the Build a Battery card game 

For printing, the 9 pages per sheet of a page should be selected. The person printing can decide on colour or greyscale, but the 9 per page is important for the order.  The printing files provides both the front and the back of the cards.

Our secondary school resources were developed in 2021 by our FutureCat Faraday Summer Undergraduate Experience (FUSE) student, Catie Kohler.

The FUSE programme is funded by the Faraday Institution.
