These short video clips, from the Teaching Astronomy and Space DVD produced by the Institute of Physics (IOP) and Teachers TV, show simple, accessible and effective demonstrations that can be carried out with students. The demonstrations do not require specialised equipment and help students to understand topics that include: * what makes a comet * the Hertzsprung-Russell Diagram * the colour and temperature of stars * electromagnetic radiation * why is the sky blue? * orbits of planets and comets * solar eclipses * the phases of the moon * light intensity and distance from the equator * red and blue wavelength shift in light



This Teaching Astronomy and Space video clip, from the Institute of Physics (IOP), Teachers TV and the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), shows a simple demonstration that can be used to help students understand red shift and blue shift of waves emitted by a moving object. Using the school yard,...
