Page 1.1Summary
This curriculum resource is designed to use cycling and aspectsrelating to it in order to understand how science works. Thematerials use cycling and associated resources to explorescientific knowledge, theories and models to provide a deeperunderstanding of the scientificprocess.
Batteries not included
Students will use and develop their knowledge of electricity in developing asafe lighting system for cycle users. This context requires them to exploreways of accessing energy that does not include batteries. Once the scientificaspects have been explored students will have the opportunity to developtheir business skills as they take their initial ideas of a lighting system andgo into production, then marketing, of this newproduct.
