Stuff and Substance

Stuff and Substance is a multimedia package developed by the Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme (SEP). It aims to address the difficulties many students have in understanding fundamental ideas in chemistry. The carefully constructed sequence of content in Stuff and Substance develops the concept of a substance alongside a particle model. It uses videos and animation to emphasize the important interplay between observable phenomena and particle explanations. This multimedia package is accompanied by a booklet for teachers, Stuff and Substance: Ten Key Practicals in Chemistry.
