Big Picture Project gives young people a unique perspective on our beautiful and changing Earth, through the eyes of an astronaut. The STEM project, which has at its heart the breathtaking new IMAX® film A Beautiful Planet, empowers them to see that small actions in their everyday lives have maximum impact when we all work together to instigate positive behavioural change.

Students are tasked by an astronaut to carry out scientific experiments and research into everyday water, waste and travel habits, and then apply an 'IMAX® Scale Tool' to assess the huge potential impact for change in their school, their country and across the UK. The resource is suitable for educators of young people aged 7-14 and includes: environmental case studies; fun facts about the Earth and life aboard the International Space Station; three lesson plans with PowerPoint presentations and activity sheets; an editable certificate and more.

These resources were created in partnership between Into Film, SUPER and IMAX®.

Updating our resources

We have developed a large catalogue of educational resources since launching in 2013, and some references and terminology will inevitably have dated as society and language evolves. We are aware of this and will be updating resources when our production schedule allows.
