Feel the Force
These The Centre for Industry Education Collaboration (CIEC) resources look at forces in real-life contexts. Students have an opportunity to learn about the properties of air and air resistance.
The context is that of a transport company looking for ways to reduce the drag of their lorries and so improve fuel economy. Children undertake a series of investigations that look at streamlining and how it effects the distance a model lorry travels after being pushed by a force. This allows children to gain experience in measuring forces, designing investigations, gathering and presenting data.
Teacher guidance, whiteboard presentations, planning boards and children activity sheets are provided.
