is an experimental information resource that has initially been set
up to support the teaching of structural mechanics in schools.
Features include: A focus on applications so that learners
understand how the results of calculations are used in making
engineering decisions; clear explanations of processes; extensive use
of hyperlinks; written documents and corresponding videos. The
resource is presently being evaluated for development in structural
mechanics and the potential of the strategies used in a wider range
of STEM learning contexts is under discussion.
