Resource sheets for #Teentech

The CILIP Information Literacy Group (ILG) has published 10 resource sheets in support of the TeenTech initiative (which encourages schoolchildren to get more interested in Science, Engineering and Technology, including having awards for Teentech projects). The sheets (produced with a Creative Commons license) "cover research skills and data collection, provide guidance on how to protect ideas, and suggest some sources that teams could use to locate information". The resources have been produced by a team of school and HE librarians (Darrly Toerien, Darren Flynn, Sarah Pavey, Caroline Roche, Carol Webb, Chris Morrison) led by Rebecca Jones. The sheets are at http://www.informationliteracy.org.uk/teentech/information-literacy-resource-sheets-for-schools/ 
The CILIP Information Literacy Group also sponsors TeenTech's Research and Information Literacy Award.
