This incursion challenges students to think critically about forces and energy and explore their various forms in innovative ways. They will investigate heat and discover how it can be used effectively as a source of energy.  Students will identify friction, magnetism and pressure as contact and non-contact forces, and investigate how different materials impact their movements.Additionally to this, student will explore a 'science museum' rotation covering many areas of physical science.
