Planning the perfect trip takes a lot of organisation and research, but how much thought does the average person put into picking the right bag for the journey? In this module, learners consider the effects of forces and the properties of materials in order to choose the ideal bag for the trip of their dreams. Integrating the skills needed to plan a fair investigation, collect and present valid data and create a podcast, this is much more scientific than choosing their favourite colour. At the end of this module students will have gained confidence in thinking analytically and communicating complicated ideas.
