Aimed at primary level, the activities within this pack demonstrate key ideas and concepts used in designing and constructing buildings such as: how levers and pulleys work, the properties of materials and the forces involved in different structures. Activities include: making a lever to lift a grown up, making plastic from milk, building bridges and making a tower out of spaghetti. Designed to demonstrate key ideas and concepts and to spark an interest in science and engineering, they could be used in class or within a science week or club. Teachers' notes are provided within the pack and include concise summaries of the science involved in the investigations. This resource is part of the British Science Association’s National Science & Engineering Week activity pack series.
