Engineering a stadium

Design the sports stadium of the future

Millions of people from all over the world will attend the men’s football World Cup in Qatar in 2022. Can you design a stadium that will not only meet their needs, but also leaves a future legacy from the competition?

In this fun STEM activity, learners will use the theme of the World Cup to design a future football stadium. They will think about the main design considerations and requirements for the stadium. They will then produce annotated sketches of their idea and think about how it could be used after the event has taken place.

This could be used as a one-off main lesson activity to develop designing and sketching skills. Alternatively, it could be used as a part of a wider scheme of work to develop designing and modelling skills in Design and Technology and Engineering.
