School posters

Supporting science learning in schools

To celebrate and explain the SI definitions, NPL has published 12 new posters for schools describing the SI and measurement. Sets of seven posters designed for primary or secondary schools feature the SI units: kilogram, metre, second, ampere, kelvin, mole and candela. We also have other posters covering terminology, the value of measurement and water rocket science. Please feel free to download and print.
