What are Forces?

Pupils will make magic force goggles that, by using their imagination, will enable them to ‘see’ forces. Pupils will then explore the museum observing forces in action and consider how to display these forces graphically.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Pupils will understand that object fall to earth because of the force of gravity acting between the earth and the object.
  • Pupils will begin to look for causal relationships and identify evidence that supports or refutes their ideas.
