These wide-ranging materials include interactive animations and print-based resources focusing on a space theme. The six major resources are: *Planet 10 - a virtual model of our solar system *Secrets of the ice - a practical activity to teach pupils about pollution and environmental change. It is set in the context of the search for alien life *Survival - problems set for pupils to explore chemical reactions and heat transfer using audio, images and video clips *Collision course - a Key Stage Four investigation into kinetic and potential energy, using the context of an asteroid hitting the Earth *Rocket into space - a school rocket programme, designed primarily for pupils aged 11 to 13, Liftoff! introduces students to the science and technology of rocket flight *Top science- a trading card game

Resources

Planet 10

This resource, from the Association for Science Education (ASE), is a virtual model of our solar system. There are two main activities in this resource.

1. Solar System:

Explore the planets, comets and asteroids on an interactive virtual fly-through. Zoom in...

Secrets of the Ice

Secrets of the Ice is provided by the Association for Science Education, and it is a practical activity which aims to teach students about pollution and environmental change. In this activity, students carry out chemical and physical tests to analyse an ice sample from another planet. Having drawn conclusions from...

Collision Course

This resource, from the Association for Science Education (ASE) is a Key Stage Four investigation into kinetic and potential energy, based on a real-life context. If a large asteroid hit the Earth, could it cause a global catastrophe? In this unit, on a table-top scale, students simulate what an impact would be...

Rocket into Science

This resource, from the Association for Science Education (ASE) introduces students to the science and technology of rocket flight.Liftoff! has been developed by the Department of Physics at the University of Surrey, with the support of PPARC and is designed primarily for students aged 11-13. It is an exciting...
