Electromagnetic Induction *suitable for home teaching*

Produced by StoryCog, this video demonstrates the process of electromagnetic induction. The video shows a simple piece of equipment that can readily be made which contains spinning magnets, a wire coil and a lamp. Spinning the magnets past the coil produces an electric current and lights the lamp.

Electrical Installation *suitable for home teaching*

Produced for Future Morph, these resources contain a video in which a student talks about her apprenticeship course in electrical installation at Exeter college. She describes the entry qualifications needed for her course, contrasts her experiences at college compared to school and briefly...

Forces and Motion: The Physics of Car Crashes *suitable for home teaching*

This film clip uses slow motion footage filmed during car crash testing to explore how energy is distributed during the fractions of a second when cars crash. The clip explores ideas of inertia, resultant forces, energy and momentum, but applies it in the real world context of designing air bags, crumple zones...

Alkali Metals *suitable for home teaching*

In the build-up to the Christmas Lectures in 2012, the Royal Institution published a new video for every day of advent revealing the elements that really excite and inspire people. Whilst on the set of Science Club, presenter Dara O'Briain explains why he is such a fan of the group of elements known as the alkali...

Dimitri Mendeleev and the periodic pattern *suitable for home teaching*

Mendeleev's invention of the periodic table of the elements showed how to predict and create further elements, something which scientists are still doing today.

I Am a Star *suitable for home teaching*

This resource is based around the chemical composition of the human body and the origin of elements in the universe. Students can input a mass in the spreadsheet to see what proportion of their mass is from elements created in the Big Bang, in stars and in supernovae. Graphs are also shown for the relative...

Stephanie Kwolek - Polymer Chemist *suitable for home teaching*

Stephanie Kwolek invented the tough polymer Kevlar, used in protective clothing and developed a method for demonstrating the production of nylon in the classroom which is still used today.

The article is from Catalyst: Secondary Science Review 2014, Volume 25, Issue 1.

Recycling Plastics *suitable for home teaching*

This film, from Twig World, looks at the differences between thermosetting, thermosoftening and partially biodegradable plastics, and how they can be recycled. The key points made in the film are: •We throw away a lot of plastic and most is non-biodegradable. •It can be recycled using mechanical and chemical...

Plastics and Polymers *suitable for home teaching*

This film, from Twig World, looks at how plastics are made and how they can be manipulated to have very different functions. The key points made in the film are: •Plastics are synthetic materials called polymers. •Polymers are made of small molecules called monomers obtained from crude oil. •The plastic's...
