Science and Computing


Task 1


Many scientific advances occurred during WW1 as a direct consequence of the war. For example, synthetic rubber was developed in Germany as the allies cut off the supply of natural rubber to the country. Marie Curie developed portable x-ray machines that could be used at the front. Research some of the scientific advances that occurred in WW1.


Task 2


make a fact file about one of the scientific advances that interests you the most.



‘Spies!’ you will be finding out about Marthe Mathilde Cnockaert.  Use the first attachment ‘fact file’ to find out about her. Using the fact cards or the internet complete attachment 2 ‘profile sheet’.  Using the ideas sheet (4) can you then produce another activity?  I cant wait to see your report, radio report or board game!
