Since its inception in 2010, the Mayden Foundation has taken on three major charitable web projects and provided donations of several thousand pounds to a variety of charities working in the UK and around the world.
Thank you for visiting our website which provides a summary of the work we are involved in; if you have any questions please feel free to get in touch via our contact form.
This week sees the launch of our two major web projects for this year: Business Against Poverty and People Against Poverty. The Mayden Foundation has been working with the charity over the last few months to migrate the former website into two distinct platforms so each can evolve separately and serve their respective audiences with more focus. The websites have been designed by Sarah Neal at Mayden and are now hosted on Mayden’s WordPress network.
Bible Reflections welcomes Jacqui - 08/09/13
We are delighted to welcome Jacqui Catcheside to the Bible Reflections team. Having previously worked at Scripture Union Jacqui is currently returning to work after being a full time mum for a while.
Jacqui is replacing Joel Mennie as the website lead and will be primarily responsible for content and managing the community of writers.
The Mayden Foundation is pleased to support the addition of four publications to a national on-line resource library.
Four interactive resources based around Sports Engineering in Education have been published in the National STEM Centre eLibrary. Sportscience and Engineering in Education, The Physics of Tennis, The Science of Tennis and The Physics of Spin in Sport were developed by Cooke Associates (in association with the LTA, SEP and the IoP) between 2000 and 2009. They cover the physical concepts and engineering behind various sports from KS2 right up to undergraduate level material.
The resources are:
- Sportscience and Engineering in Education looks at aspects of the national curriculum (KS2-4) in the context of today’s sports, including Formula 1 and tennis, as well as some of the underlying engineering (the design of sport shoes and swimming pool). http://stem.org.uk/rx9nv
- The Physics of Tennis focuses of how physical concepts are put into action in a game of tennis and is aimed at KS4-5. http://stem.org.uk/rx9nt
- The Science of Tennis covers the science and engineering of rackets, balls, shoes, surfaces and ball flight simulation: http://stem.org.uk/rx9nu
- The Physics of Spin in Sport provides information about the dynamics of flight for different projectiles in sport: http://stem.org.uk/rx9nw
These resources have been kindly donated by Cooke Associates and some further on-going development will be funded through the Mayden Foundation over the course of this year.
