More info: The ‘Measurement at Home’ challenge is suitable for everyone, from primary school to A-level students. The first challenge took place on Monday 11th May, and investigated force with ‘Break a Flake’, “which teaches young people some of the skills that NPL engineers use in their work – but all you need are cereal flakes and kitchen scales!”
“NPL is the authority on measurement in the UK, and so much of the Covid-19 response has relied on measurement science, for tracking the spread and treating the virus with new technologies. These challenges aim to get entire families excited about science and inspire the next generation of measurement scientists.”
