### Computers and maths in space

Mathematics plays a vital part in space flight, it gives us a way both to predict what should happen in the future and also ways to measure what’s actually happening in the present, and adapt to it. In this resource we look at a few places where maths helps in space flight. The maths is made simple here (it’s far,...

### Building Images

In this activity, students create colour images from satellite data. This allows them to study how different surfaces reflect different wavelengths of light, how coloured images are created using an RGB model, and how band combinations can be chosen to examine a particular landscape effectively.

### Save the World with STEM

How can STEM help us survive and thrive? From thinking about how diseases are spread or contained, to building a better skyscraper that can withstand earthquakes, this programme of activities explores both the practical and the hypothetical. Students are asked to explore the big question: Can we save the world with...

### Dijkstra's Algorithm

Dijkstra's algorithm finds the shortest path for a given problem. Dijkstra's algorithm can be used to find the shortest route between two cities. This algorithm is so powerful that it not only finds the shortest path from a chosen source to a given destination, it also finds all of the shortest paths from the...

### Behind the scenes

STEM plays an important role in the movies, even if you don’t always see it on the big screen. Sometimes it’s in the special effects that enhance a scene, or even the big ideas behind the story.

This programme has students creating their own special effects, building and testing stunt cars and exploring...

### Seeing The Unseen - Radar. Practical, active group activity to discover how basic maths and physics help engineers to "see the unseen"

Group activity involving volunteers moving around a teaching space and using time, distance and speed measurements to locate a student taking on the role of an aircraft.

Supports the use of Speed = Distance / Time and also the concept of radio waves travelling through space, giving practical meaning to...
