Think about the idea of helping teachers by providing them with teaching material that is related to your research area. You will have the chance to draw the students’ attention to a science area that you find important. Additionally, you will support educators who are currently striving to teach online and need attractive teaching material.  

Tips: 

  • Select your audience. Would you like to prepare something for primary, secondary or university school students?  
  • Find out what the selected audience already knows about your topic. If the answer is “nothing”, then you could prepare an introductory lesson, as in the example below. 
  • Contact your former teacher or university professor to see if they have specific needs. Collaborate with them on the production of teaching material. 
  • You can work independently, but to collaborate with an educator will be of significant help for you and will safeguard the outcome of your efforts. 

Inspire your students  

Max Brunhart (Delphi Technologies) and the CaFE team have prepared a lesson plan on fluid dynamics for students under the age of 15. The lesson plan aims to introduce young students to fluid dynamics, the related terminology, and its applications. 

The learning process takes under consideration Howard Gardner’s theory of the multiple intelligences. The main source of information is a song about the scientific field of fluid dynamics and the tasks aim to safeguard that the learners are not restricted to one modality of learning. They are designed to help students activate one or more of the following intelligences: musical-rhythmic, linguistic, logical- mathematical. 

So, inspire your students to learn fluid dynamics! Feel free to use the available resources:
