Case Study: Plumbing

Produced for Future Morph, this resource contains a video in which an apprentice plumber talks about his work in a renewable energy company installing solar water panels. The theory and practicals he learns in college is applied in the workplace.

A second activity looks at a demonstration that illustrates...

Case Study: Service Engineering

Produced for Future Morph, this video sees an apprentice in service engineering talk about his work. Service engineers are mechanical engineers who work on equipment such as engines and gearboxes. The student describes how his attendance at college fits with his job in an engineering business and allows him to...

Condensation Polymerisation

Produced by Solar Spark, this activity allows students to see a condensation polymerisation reaction in action as the polyamide polymer, Nylon, is produced. This is a condensation polymer made of two parent monomers, a di-amine and a di-acid chloride.

The reaction can be used to illustrate:
*...

A Visible Activated Complex

In this classic demonstration, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, cobalt (II) chloride catalyses the reaction between hydrogen peroxide and potassium sodium tartrate. During the reaction the catalyst changes colour, showing that it is involved in the reaction.

The resource provides a list of apparatus and...

An Oscillating Reaction

In this classic demonstration, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, manganese (II) ions catalyse the reaction between bromate ions and malonic acid. The reaction oscillates between red-brown and colourless.

The resource provides a list of apparatus and chemicals needed for the experiment, together with...

The Equilibrium Between ICl and ICl3

In this classic demonstration, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, an equilibrium is set up between iodine chloride, chlorine and iodine trichloride. The amount of chlorine can be varied and the effect on equilibrium observed.

The Combustion of Iron Wool

In this classic demonstration, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, iron wool is heated on a seesaw balance and the gain in mass is observed.

The resource provides a list of apparatus and chemicals needed for the experiment, together with teaching tips.

Curriculum links include: chemical reactions...

Chemiluminescence - Oxidation of Luminol

In this classic demonstration, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, a solution of luminol is oxidised by sodium chlorate giving out a blue glow without an increase in temperature.

The resource provides a list of apparatus and chemicals needed for the experiment, together with teaching tips.

The Reaction Between Zinc and Copper Oxide

In this classic demonstration, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, copper oxide and zinc are heated together, the reaction is exothermic and the products are identified. The properties of the products are also demonstrated.

The resource provides a list of apparatus and chemicals needed for the experiment,...

Urea-methanal Polymerisation

In this classic demonstration, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, a hard thermosetting polymer is produced by adding acid to a solution of urea in formalin. This reaction is very exothermic.
