Ashfield Music Festival
Ashfield Music Festival is a careers simulation activity. The pack contains all you need to run a one-day, off-timetable activity with a large group of 14–15-year-old students. Pupils work in teams to plan a music festival. They take on specialist roles in the teams and seek advice from a group of “experts”. The aim is to show them that a knowledge and understanding of physics is useful in the world of business and enterprise. It is a good opportunity to bring in outside support and to include physics in a school’s enterprise agenda. You can find out more about the activity, or order a pack, on the Ashfield page of the IOP website.
