The research presented here will illustrate how senior lecturers working in collaboration with a large secondary school in the North West of England have managed to incorporate and introduce the latest advances in bio-mechanics and bio-technologies into the design and technology curriculum at Key Stage 5 (KS5). Currently this study has only been trialed with a modest number of students (n=9) in a single institution as part of integrating; Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) into the curriculum as a whole. Results are highly encouraging and show the importance to those in education of diversifying and using real life situations and the latest technologies available to enhance the experience of learners in their charge.
