Using Engineering Gold in the Classroom

Description

A look at the research carried out by chemical engineering and skiing coach Professor Peter Styring, which led to the development of self-lubricating skis.

Several areas of the How Science Works curriculum are addressed, including practical and enquiry skills and the collection and analysis of scientific data.

Students at King Edward VII School in Sheffield attempt to replicate Peter's experiments in the classroom and get first hand experience of gathering reliable data.
