Extension activities

Further learning

We recommend the following additional activities to support science and careers teachers as well as club leaders and STEM ambassadors in delivering industry-related science and careers curriculum linked to the science, engineering and technology content of this website.

Cool For School 2021

This new annual competition is for teams of students to research, plan and present a scientific principle in a video - with science prizes for your school for the winning entries.  Students have to detail what they have learnt about refrigeration and how they worked in your team. Find out more below.


Site Tours

We can arrange for school trips to refrigeration sites of interest like behind the scenes in a supermarket or design office of a factor.  See the list of companies supporting this website for ideas.
