Ron’s Ramp Adventure Project: Explained

Ron’s Ramp is a Key Stage 1 project designed for ages 6-7 from the STEM in Action range. The project explores the effect of forces on objects and features Ron, a skateboarding armadillo, who wants to make a skateboard ramp that is safe for everyone. Through engaging practical exploration, slopes and surfaces are brought to life. Students are introduced to the effects of friction and gradient on motion and distance, while exploring the concepts of guessing (predicting) and recording data. They also learn about measurement and using graphs to problem solve as they are challenged to engineer the ramp so that Ron goes far… but not too far! read more
