Terrific Scientific - Live Lesson

What happens when I eat?

This Live Lesson will help your pupils to think and work like a scientist, with a focus on taste, nutrition, and the energy that food provides.

Hosted by Barney Harwood and Fran Scott, and featuring developmental psychologist Professor Jackie Blissett and superstar guest CBBC's Hacker T Dog, the lesson is designed to support upper KS2/2nd Level science learning.

It explores the relationship between human taste and nutrition and encourages pupils to learn how to think and work scientifically - including planning, measuring, observing changes, controlling variables and using test results.

This edited programme was first streamed live to schools in January 2017.
