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.

Showing in selected IMAX® screens from Friday 27th May. Search for UK screenings at http://www.imax.com/movies/beautiful-planet

What our educators say

"The Filmmaking Guides have been invaluable in helping novice filmmakers, from ensuring their story is well told, to thinking about light, camera angles and editing."
