An Applications of Science module consists
of a large-scale construction kit, and
contains all the equipment students will              Cart storage option shown
need to complete a module.

Using the large-scale construction kit to
carry out a number of building, experiment
and problem solving tasks, students will
gain a valuable insight in to the real world

Through the use of assignment sheets
containing high quality graphics, students
are guided through their assignment.
