This month we’re really GOING PLACES! We’re investigating different types of transport, the environmental impact of getting around and how we might get from A to B in the future. You can have a go at levitating your Lego, making a flying chopstick copter and experimenting with a wind-powered car. Discover ten awesomely amazing ways to get to school, from hanging bridges and ladders to boats and donkeys, find out how helicopters stay in the sky and race across town by train, bus, car or bike in our Beep Beep board game!
You can use an old pair of jeans to make a brilliant bag to take on your travels, experiment with a paper plane and launcher, and discover how the era of human flight took off when the Montgolfier brothers invented the hot-air balloon. Find out about the future of flying from helicopter engineer Simone Weber, gallop away with horses, the animals that changed how humans got around and see a Sun-powered car leading the way to fuel-free travel.
Away we go!
