Movies are amazing: a good movie can make you laugh, cry or jump in surprise. But how do they do it? The music you are listening to plays a big part. This programme investigates the design and technology that goes into making movies sound good – from understanding how soundtracks can make you feel a particular emotion, to how cinemas are designed to make your movie experience intense.
The activities are introduced with a quick objective and a preparation guide. Individuals or groups can then work through the challenges to achieve the results. The main subject topics are design and technology, computing, engineering, physics and mathematics.
Background information, extension ideas and top tips are provided, together with student guides and instructions. This resource has been created by STEM Learning to support the STEM Clubs Programme and has been developed in partnership with STEM Club leaders.
We created guidance videos to talk you through the activities – watch them here and use the fun animations below in your next STEM Club session!
