STEM skills act as the perfect platform to a more socially mobile and globally impactful life. They broaden horizons, empower the disadvantaged and diversify life choices. But many young people have yet to see the 'bigger picture' impact these skills could have on the world.
That’s why RS Components has developed Imagine-X. It links dynamic, exciting STEM subjects to real people who have used the same skills to make the world a better place. It gives teachers free curriculum-aligned resources for students aged 7 – 14, with one aim: helping students realize the far-reaching potential of STEM and their imaginations.

Find out how the Helping Hands, Making Hands Lesson Plan will help your students understand the science of Biomechanics. They will learn about the movement of the body and the impact of losing a limb through birth or injury. How can this be addressed through the use of prosthetics and what STEM skills can be used to make a big difference in someone’s life?
Chris Hillidge introduces the Imagine-X lesson plans for Middle/High-School schools
'The Power of Prosthetics' is a secondary-level introduction to the exciting subject of Biomechanics - the science of movement of a living body. These lesson plans incorporate elements of design technology, biology and engineering together with social responsibility. They are designed to give your class an insight into the world changing possibilities of prosthetics.
