Forces and Motion Workshop

Science workshop for schools based on forces

This workshop for schools was developed by a qualified Aerospace Engineer with experience in the industry. The workshop will help students further their understanding of forces and motion by engaging them in several practical activities. It covers concepts such as thrust, gravity, friction, drag and pressure.

Problem Solving

Students will learn about bridge engineering by building KNEX models. They will construct a beam bridge to stand a specific load. Additionally, students will learn how engineers can strengthen a bridge by adding trusses to the structure.
