In this activity children investigate the effects of gravity and create a series of force diagrams to explain what it would be like in zero gravity.
In this activity children investigate the movement of waves and use a chart to explain how to predict when a tsunami may hit.

Forces, motion, electricity, atomic physics and wave effects can be illustrated using outdoor student activities.
Gravity is an intangible abstract force when considered theoretically and yet we are affected by it constantly.

In this activity children will investigate electrical circuits and consider how a safe and reliable circuit that works, can be made.
In this activity children investigate how the pitch of the buzz from a twanged ruler can be changed and relate this to the sound of mosquito wings.
In this activity children explore how different shadows can be formed depending on the number and position of light sources.
