Seeing The Unseen - Radar. Practical, active group activity to discover how basic maths and physics help engineers to "see the unseen"
Group activity involving volunteers moving around a teaching space and using time, distance and speed measurements to locate a student taking on the role of an aircraft.
Supports the use of Speed = Distance / Time and also the concept of radio waves travelling through space, giving practical meaning to theoretical concepts. Also includes a simpler adaptation for younger groups where the mathematics is less of a key concern.
