About

It's easy to view forces as 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.

Based on the CGC module "Feel The Force" by Dr. Gareth Price

In this 30 hour module, learners imagine themselves as a travel blogger planning a once in a lifetime trip to a rainforest. Fascinated by what they might find when they get there, this module is a mix of researching the unknown, purposefully asking why, and communicating effectively along the way. Concepts explored include explaining the science behind the rainforest climate, gaining a deeper understanding of communicating proportion using fractions and charts, and how to research without plagiarizing. The module culminates with an exciting journey into coding the perfect website to reach their followers! This is the perfect module to scientists, fledgling journalists and everyone in between.
