### Designing the Mirror

In this activity, students will use memory metal wire to create a model of a deployable structure.  The James Webb Space Telescope has several structures that must be deployed in space, including parts of the primary mirror.  Students must create and evaluate a design to enable the primary mirror to fold inside the...

### Flight Test

This activity requires students to design and construct a payload fairing and vibration rig to test a protection system for a satellite (an egg).  Students are given limited materials (this can be differentiated accordingly) to produce their model, the success of the model is initially measured by the egg not being...

### Multi-Race Game

This game, aimed at primary level, allows children to practice multiplication problems. Children move along a track landing on different numbers, mainly from the 6, 7, 8 and 9 times tables. To move they must say the pair of numbers (factors) which will multiply together to give a nearby product on the board. The...

### The Webb Telescope in Fusion 360

These guides contain instructions on how to build a 3D CAD model of the Webb Space Telescope using Fusion 360. The Webb Space Telescope is a space telescope that will be...

### Surviving Space Temperatures

When the James Webb Space Telescope is deployed it will have one side which continually faces the Sun and is warmed by the Sun, and one side which does not face the sun. The cold side of JWST houses scientific instruments which work better if they are at a low temperature, so a sunshield is used to keep the...

### Grid Multiplication as an Interim Step

This clip is the third of a suite of videos which look at progression in multiplication at primary level. It follows Richard, in Lower Key Stage Two as he shows how to move children on from using an array to using the grid method for multiplication. Working with a small group of children he demonstrates how to...

### Rainbow Spinner - Mathematics

This resource, aimed at primary level, contains mathematical activity ideas linked to the science rainbow spinner demonstration. Activities in this resource investigate: radius, diameter and circumference of a circle, angles and puzzles. This resource has been...

### James Webb Space Telescope: Vibration Design Testing

Aimed at upper primary learners this resource provides a design and technology activity based on the challenges engineers and space scientists faced whilst working on the creation of the telescope. Children...

### James Webb Space Telescope: Keeping Things Cold

In this activity children learn about how the James Webb Space Telescope is designed to keep itself cold. They find out about the sunshield and how it works then explore how they can keep cold things cold, when...

### James Webb Space Telescope: Investigating How Freezing Affects Materials

In this resource children investigate how the properties of different materials change when they are frozen. The two activities are based on a challenge scientists and engineers had when designing the James...
