Whilst this list provides a source of information and ideas for experimental work, it is important to note that recommendations can date very quickly. Do NOT follow suggestions which conflict with current advice from CLEAPSS, SSERC or recent safety guides. eLibrary users are responsible for ensuring that any activity, including practical work, which they carry out is consistent with current regulations related to Health and Safety and that they carry an appropriate risk assessment. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
Links and Resources
These Science Council resources provide careers-related contexts to support teaching of the science and mathematics subject curricula. The materials help students understand the relevance of science and mathematics to a wide range of career routes, many of which they do not necessarily associate with these subjects. The resources include short video profiles of people who use science and maths in their job. Each video is linked to a practical activity suggested in the Resources Booklet and described in detail in the teachers' notes accompanying every video.
In response to the shortage of trained engineers, the Electrical Research Association (ERA) Foundation launched Born to Engineer, a campaign to inspire young people to become the engineers of the future. At the heart of the campaign is a series of high quality short films, each featuring an engineer with an inspiring story.
Faces of Chemistry is a collection of videos and resources produced by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) to highlight the importance of chemistry in real life and the different applications. The series explores how chemical research leads to new products and technologies, highlights careers opportunities from studying chemistry and includes some chemists talking about their inspiration, work and careers
