Inspiration & ideas

The West in Minecraft

The West in Minecraft educational resources take a digital, play-based approach to support children to develop their own ideas and problem-solving skills, and engage with engineering as a creative and diverse subject that can impact the world around us. These lessons are centred around the popular block-building video game Minecraft, and use a newly developed ‘Bristol & Bath world’ called The West in Minecraft to allow children to explore, build, re-design and re-engineer their very own cities! This resource pack includes a detailed lesson plan for KS2 and KS3, which can be delivered online or in the classroom, curriculum-linked worksheets and challenges which draw on several different subjects including Design and Technology, Geography and Science, with links to local engineering innovations and iconic locations including the Clifton Suspension Bridge, Roman Baths and SS Great Britain!

TABI Study (Teen Appearance and Body Image)

Young people often have concerns about the way they look. This can sometimes affect a range of things, such as their self-perceptions, their relationships with others, and how they do at school. The Centre for Appearance Research has launched a new study called TABI (Teen Appearance and Body Image) to explore young people’s experience of appearance and body image using an online survey. The TABI team are keen for all young people, with and without visible differences, to take part in their study to better understand their experiences. This will inform future research and the development of targeted support for young people who struggle with appearance-related issues. As a thank you for taking part, participants will be entered into a prize draw to win one of four £50 Amazon vouchers!
