Learning Objectives

To allow students to continue their learning whilst studying at home our Big Questions are a way of enabling pupils to make cross curricular links and relate their learning to the world around them.

Our Big Question topics include:

  • What impact have advances in materials science had on boat design? 
  • What does it take to become an elite athlete? 
  • How do you design a winning America’s Cup boat? 
  • How can we design a product to minimise it’s impact on the environment? 
  • How has innovation and technology impacted performance in sport? 
  • What does it take to win the America’s Cup – the world’s oldest sporting trophy?

Lesson Description

NEW! Remote Learning Resources

We have put together a series of 6 student projects which can be used either in the classroom or at home. These projects are based on the concept of Big Questions.

A Big Question is a way of guiding pupils to make links between distinct subject areas and relate them to the world around them. We have chosen 6 Big Questions and added the resources your pupils will need to be able to form a detailed and considered response.

The questions span a range of areas; human performance, design, the environment and technology.

The Big Question projects may be used for teaching science or design technology curriculum, or as part of a cross curricular project across multiple subjects (including English and humanities).
