      Hi Nicola, thanks for your question. The individual investigations are hard copy only. Schools that buy any full phase packs (KS1, LKS2, UKS2) of Love to Investigate can access digital versions of the investigations on our Hub. Unfortunately, at this moment in time, we are unable to control access at an individual investigation level and so can’t make this online option available.
