This progression toolkit develops understanding of the key concept of making circuits, as part of a topic on simple electric circuits. This key concept helps to build broader understanding about electricity and magnetism, which is one of the big ideas of science education at ages 11-14.
These activities, from the Institute of Physics, look at electrical circuits. They provide a review of previous knowledge and introduce the language needed to cope with the greater depth of learning at post-16 level. Activities include: • a discussion about electrical circuits to reinforce knowledge and highlight...
This simulation demonstrates how Ohm's law relates to a simple circuit. The voltage and resistance can be adjusted to see how this affects the current. The sizes of the symbols in the equation change to match the circuit diagram.
From Practical Action, this 1-2 hour class activity uses the supply of energy for an island community to help students to understand renewable energy options.
This resources investigates how electrical energy is generated from renewable and non-renewable sources.
Suggested learning outcomes include:
- To know the difference between a renewable and a non-renewable source of energy.
- To understand how electrical energy is generated from at least...
Rebecca Beresford is an energy analyst at EDF Energy. This clip could be useful when teaching about sustainable development, enery efficiency or climate change. It also illustrates a career that requires an understanding of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Rebecca describes her role, "...
Astrium is Europe’s largest space company, employing 3,500 people in the UK alone. Astrium produces some of the world’s leading edge earth observation, science and telecommunication satellites in one of the most exciting sectors of the engineering profession.
This resource features five inspiring people who developed Bridget, a six-wheeled ExoMars rover.
Bridget is a prototype of the vehicle that will be the largest and most sophisticated vehicle ever to visit Mars.
Each of the featured scientists describe their role in the space technology company...
In this resource students will carry out experiments with prisms, polarising film and 3D cinema glasses to explain some of the interesting properties of light and their applications.
Curriculum links include refractive index, total internal reflection, polarisation
