We’ve devised 7 questions to inspire your students to make creative connections between STEM subjects and art and design – and beyond!
You can use our series of short films and linked resources to get your students thinking and exploring – and we hope you’ll share what you discover with us in our online gallery by emailing us on 7questions@tesglobal.com

7 Questions

1: What would life be like without electricity?

With electricity playing such an important role in our everyday lives, it’s easy to take it for granted. But have you ever stopped to wonder what your life would be like if you had no access to electricity?

2: What does sound look like?

Sound is all around us. Take a guitar, a piano or a trombone. We can hear it, we can see the instrument, but can we actually see the sound it produces? If you could see sound, what would it look like? 

3: Do you see what I see?

Reflections in mirrors are amazing things that tell us a great deal about how we see ourselves. But what do reflections tell us about the mirrors themselves? And have you ever wondered if I see what you see? 

4: What’s in the clouds?

Have you ever looked up to the clouds in the sky and wondered what they are? Scientists, artists and poets have also been fascinated and inspired by clouds.

5: Where does the sun go at night?

Daytime is when you can see the sun from where you are, and its light and heat can reach you. Nighttime is when the sun is on the other side of the Earth from you, when it’s dark and colder. But do you know where the sun actually goes at night?

6: Where can you find patterns?

Patterns are all around us. How many patterns can you find? Have you thought about how or why those patterns form? Famous artists like Maurits Escher have been fascinated by patterns too.

7: Can you lift something heavier than yourself?

Have you ever tried to lift something that was heavier than yourself? Do you think this is even possible?
