  • 3 - 5 years, 5 - 7 years, 7 - 11 years

These resources are available on the STEM Learning website. They provide a set of videos and a practical investigation aimed at supporting working scientifically in the classroom and relating science to real world experiences. Professor Brian Cox joins a teacher to find out how to set up and run the investigations.

  • In ‘Sound’ they plan an investigation to find out what affects the pitch and volume of a sound. 
  • In ‘Light’ they plan an investigation into what affects the size of a shadow.

The Ogden Trust teacher guides are available to download from STEM Learning to support the investigation.
