Bionic Limbs

Richard Hirons, a clinical specialist in prosthetics, explains how engineers are designing prosthetic limbs which can reproduce normal sensory and motor control for amputees by combining sensors, artificial intelligence, motors, electronics, software and accelerometers.

Mark Woods, a paralympic gold...

Nature Reinvented

This video from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) looks at how bioengineers are developing new treatments for torn ligaments. Tissue engineering involves taking the patient's own cells and growing them on a synthetic scaffold before reintroducing them into the patient. This avoids tissue...

Prosthetic Design

This inspirational video highlights careers in biomedical engineering. Until recently, bone cancer patients would have had a limb amputated, but today prosthetic surgery can remove the tumour section and replace it with individually engineered implants made from a multitude of specialised materials.

Faces of Chemistry: Packaging Gases

This video, from the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), highlights the importance of gases produced by the gas company BOC in food preservation processes. It explains the processes of cooling air, removal of water vapour followed by fractional distillation of liquid air to separate out the constituent gases....

Faces of Chemistry: Hair Colourants

In this video, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, scientists from Procter & Gamble explain the chemistry involved in how hair colourants dye your hair They discuss how consumers need or demand a faster hair colouring experience. The processes in the production of hair colourants are explained, including...

Faces of Chemistry: Sun Lotion

In this video, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, two scientists from Croda talk about the importance of sun protection and their work in developing skin care products. They explain the production of titanium dioxide particles, which are able to filter ultra violet (UV) radiation, and how these are made...

Faces of Chemistry: Biosensors

In this video, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, two analytical chemists involved in sports research talk about their work in developing biosensors to monitor athletes performance. They describe biosensors as analytical devices which convert a biological response into an electrical signal. They can...

Faces of Chemistry: Helen Neville

In this video, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, Helen Neville talks about how she was inspired to study chemistry. She talks about her research and how she became interested in working in an industry where her chemical knowledge could be applied. In the interview she discusses the valuable learning...

Down to Earth: Scientists Today - Dr Holly Bridge

This resource, which links to the topic of light, takes the form of an interview with a modern day scientist, Dr Holly Bridge.

Holly uses modern technology to look at how the brain processes the images of the world that we see through our eyes. She talks about how different parts of the brain process...

Community Transport: Scenarios

In this activity, students use what they have found out about community transport systems to suggest possible solutions to existing transportation problems. They watch the film Transportation Planning which focuses on the career of a transportation planner who worked on the London 2012 Olympic games and who is a...
