19 x 15-minute programmes
This engaging and entertaining double-disc compilation skilfully combines documentary, animation and graphics to explain science and technology in everyday life. Children are shown how scientific investigation in the classroom relates to practical applications in the outside world, with examples drawn from manufacturing, crafts and recycling, sport and leisure pursuits, cookery and DIY.
Scientific concepts are presented and explained using animation, puppetry and songs, while the technology programmes examine the properties and uses of everyday materials such as paper and plastic. The embedded support materials offer a wealth of ideas for ‘design and make’ activities that can be pursued after viewing.
