Future of Transport

There are lots of different modes of transport that gets people and things from A to B, from walking to school, all the way to space probes launching into outer space. 

Many of these modes of transport currently rely on fossil fuels which contribute to the climate crisis. Transport of the future will therefore have to change drastically to meet our net zero carbon emissions targets to tackle the climate emergency.


Activity: Future of Transport

One of the ways that many of our things, from tiny bits of Lego all the way to cars, get to us is by boat. Investigate the properties of different materials and if they float or sink. Use this to inform your design of a boat to float and carry an object from A to B.
