What's in the kit?

Launchbox contains hands-on investigative activities that students use to create their own ‘inefficient machine’, taking inspiration from the areas of science covered in our popular Launchpad gallery, and our fascinating film On the Move

The activities are based around themes of:

  • light
  • sound
  • electricity and magnetism
  • energy transfer
  • forces and motion
  •  materials

Each Launchbox comes with a CD giving access to all the supporting materials you need, including videos and full instructions. So it's all ready for you to use with minimal preparation or fuss.

Launchbox is accredited for the Bronze CREST Award.
