Radar: seeing the unseen
This activity booklet uses the real life context of air traffic control using radar signals to identify the position of an aeroplane that students act out. It provides them with an opportunity to use their knowledge of waves and speed = distance / time to calibrate and calculate the distance a plane is from the radar. This will aid their working scientifically skill base as well as providing them with how physics is used day to day.
