Welcome to Project Blaster

The tool that will help you make a really exciting classroom project. Project Blaster will guide you in identifying, collecting and selecting the right information to create something really imaginative, like an art exhibition, or a science experiment, or even your own book.

Project Blaster works by guiding you through six project stages. The six project stages are like stepping stones in a journey of discovery and creativity. Each stage has a classroom activity for you to work through either online or by printing off the activity sheets.

By working through each stage, you will understand how to identify sources then analyse and select the best ones for your project. It helps build critical thinking skills by asking you to think about information in a fun and creative way.
