The Bloodhound SSC Engineering Design sheets have been put to good use already with several schools taking part. Inspiring interest in STEM subjects through this open source engineering project, resources have been created to encourage teamwork and creativity. KS3 pupils in teams of up to four, have been using the blank areas on the sheet to make drawings of their design thinking. Information printed on the sheet is used in conjunction with a range of different design briefs.
The Institution of Mechanical Engineers are sponsoring the BLOODHOUND SSC Education Programme with two new Foldedsheet resources: the Engineering Design sheet and the Activity sheet. The Education Programme are developing these sheets for schools working in STEM subjects at KS2 and KS3, and young people interested in science, technology, engineering and maths. The Engineering Design sheet encourages small groups working in classroom teams to solve design briefs set by the Bloodhound Project, and the Activity sheet encourages younger individuals to discover facts about the Bloodhound engineering at various events.

Today, the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum in Coventry was announced as the winner of the 2009 Guardian Family Friendly Museum Award. As winner they received 500 Foldedsheet Mammoth Activity Sheets – we hope they enjoy using them! Further details about the award can be found on the Kids in Museums website.
We thought you might like a preview of the new Activity sheet we designed for Kids in Museums. Five hundred of these sheets, containing spaces for drawing and writing, are destined for the winner of The Guardian Family Friendly Museum Award 2009. It will be interesting for us to see what kinds of projects the museum or gallery uses the sheets for, and fun to see how the kids interact with them. The Activity sheet is smaller in size than our Drawing sheets and Writing sheets, but still contains enough space to make some really big scribblings!

The Kids in Museums Manifesto, along with the Guardian’s Family Friendly Museum Award have been incredibly successful ways of encouraging and guiding museums and galleries across the country to make family visits engaging and enjoyable.
This evening, the Kids in Museums Manifesto 2009 will be launched at the Royal Academy of Arts, London – we have supplied a number of our Drawing Sheets and Writing Sheets to be distributed at this event.
