Under Pressure – Schools

Explore the forces that engineers need to overcome to design a strong tunnel.

​Can you conquer pressure? Your students will work together to solve the problems we face underground and design a strong tunnel. Drawing on links to forces and materials, this interactive show will reveal what pressure is, the effects it has and how we can engineer a solution.

Continue the learning and visit the Eurostar in Great Hall. Encourage your students to look closely at the cut-through of the Channel Tunnel and think about how it's designed to conquer pressure.
