Bright Sparks: Activity Sheets

Six activity sheets produced by the Institute of Physics (IOP) to accompany the MODEL Project's Bright Sparks video.

Worksheet One takes an overview of the topic. Worksheets Two - Five are targeted at specific sections of the video.

Answers to all the worksheet questions are provided in the Word...

Rocket Science Activities

From NASA, these activities look at the scientific, technological, engineering and mathematical foundations of rocketry to provide exciting classroom opportunities for authentic hands-on experimentation. Rockets have formed the basis of space exploration.

Extensive teachers' notes, guidance and lesson plans...

Future Morph: Timber Framer

This Future Morph video clip introduces Marc Watson, a timber framer, who discusses constructing and designing frames for buildings. Marc describes how the properties of different woods and the forces acting on a frame must be taken into consideration. This includes calculating forces on individual beams and the...

Want to Do Something Different?

Produced by the Gender Equality and Race Inclusion (GERI) project, this teacher guidance and classroom activities outline a process that encourages young people to explore, in a comprehensive and constructive way, those jobs usually done by members of the opposite sex. Case studies and activities look at various...

Measuring the Thrust of a Balloon Powered Car

This activity from BLOODHOUND SSC illustrates the forces acting on BLOODHOUND SSC by calculating the thrust of a balloon powered car. The resource explores thrust as a concept, tying in with Newton’s Laws of Motion.

Students:
* Build a balloon car
* Conduct speed-time experiments using the...

Science and Engineering on the Moon Challenge

These NASA materials describe hands-on science and engineering challenges for students, using space exploration as an engaging context. The activities are related to NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and NASA's Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite missions. Students design and build: *an air-powered...

An Introduction to Circuit Symbols

Produced by the Learning and Skills Improvement Service, these materials introduce students to circuit symbols. They develop their knowledge and understanding of circuit symbols and components through a range of short, interactive learning activities. These are particularly useful to reinforce, or consolidate,...

Distance-time and Velocity-time Graphs

Produced by the Learning and Skills Improvement Service, this activity takes students through a step-by-step approach to understanding the basic principles of distance-time and velocity-time graphs. Working through the activity will help students to:
* Understand the terms distance, time, velocity and...

Investigating Turning Forces: Moments

In this activity, from the LSIS, students discover for themselves the importance of the perpendicular distance in moments. It is presented as a whole class discussion but can easily be adapted for small group work.

The activity uses a magnetic disc that takes about 15 minutes to construct. The activity will...

Moments: Revision

Produced by LSIS, this short activity can be used to monitor and assess understanding of moments. It can also be used as an extension or reinforcement activity at the end of a topic on moments or as a revision activity. It is a useful way to check students’ familiarity with, and use of, the spoken and written...
