Episode 101: Introduction to Circuits

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...

Ohm's Law

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.

How to Save the Planet and Be Cool

In this Science Museum video, the Punk Science team show some of the changes needed to help prevent climate change, focusing on reuse, recycling and reducing waste. Many ways of reducing waste are shown in the form of a photo diary. The issues of food miles and vehicle emissions are also addressed.
