STEM Learning demonstration videos
In this set of five videos, STEM Learning staff show a range of experiments which can be used by science teachers in the school laboratory or classroom. The videos include tips on how to conduct the experiments and explain what is being demonstrated by each one. The experiments chosen will fascinate and impress students whilst putting across key scientific points. The demonstrators encourage teachers to ask questions of their students to promote scientific enquiry.
In this National STEM Learning Centre and Network video, Simon Quinnell demonstrates a spectacular and noisy experiment showing the oxidisation of hydrogen peroxide using ethanol and potassium permanganate. An exciting illustration of energy changes, the...
In this National STEM Learning Centre and Network video, Simon Quinnell demonstrates four experiments, with the theme of Christmas, that teachers can do in the school laboratory.
These are:* Tea bag convection - see how a burning teabag mysteriously rises on convection currents in the air around it.* The...
In this National STEM Learning Centre and Network video, Zoe Crompton shows two activities that primary teachers can use in the winter. Each one involves using snow or ice. The first activity is inspired by the question "Why do we put salt on the roads?" It demonstrates a fair test to compare the effectiveness of...
In this National STEM Learning Centre and Network video, Simon Quinnell investigates the way different materials conduct heat using conductivity blocks and ice cubes. The video shows how the ice cubes melt at different rates depending on the thermal conductivity of the materials they are sitting on. Simon explains...
