It’s easy to view forces and an impossibly complex physics concept, but they become much simpler when we explore what they can do! In this module, learners start by working through a series of experiments to explore how we can measure force and incorporate our knowledge of forces into design. Alongside, they explore the running blades used by world class athletes, how humanitarian aid can be delivered by parachute and how we can present factual information using good literacy techniques.

Learners will understand that different materials are made of different types or arrangements of atoms; external, balanced forces do not produce a change in the movement of an object but affect it in other ways; and evidence must be collected in specified ways reflecting current understanding of relevant variables affecting the phenomenon and to accepted standards to be comparable between observers.
Learners will be able to design and carry out simple practical investigations to generate quantitative data about the elasticity of a range of substances; explain how structures and materials affect their functions; and describe practical activities into the elasticity of substances with sufficient detail to allow readers to judge the reliability of the data generated.
Learners become more open to others’ ideas and aware of challenges faced by different people around the world.
Modules can be delivered in short or long formats
Each module can be delivered in formats of 3 hours a day, or 1.5 hours a day. Importantly, our modules are carefully designed to ensure that even in the 3 hour format, children have a maximum exposure time of 2.5 hours total screen time per day, with a limit of 40 minutes in any one continuous block.
