Science KS4

Welcome to the Tunnelworks Science KS4 area

Introducing the Thames Tideway Tunnel. Watch the video to find out why we need to clean up the River Thames.

Here you’ll find three ‘essentials’ lessons, complete with interactive online content, student worksheets and detailed lesson plans. Each lesson challenges students to solve a realistic engineering problem to help design, build or operate the Thames Tideway Tunnel.

After that, you can ‘dig deeper’ with follow-up ideas for more lessons for more able students.

Finally, a CREST silver project is outlined, if you wish to connect your work to this well regarded science award scheme.
