Build an Atom

This simulation allows you to build an atom out of protons, neutrons, and electrons, and see how the element, charge, and mass change. Students can then play a game to test their ideas.

Curriculum links include:

  • Atoms
  • Atomic Structure
  • Isotope Symbols
  • Atomic Nuclei...

The Liverpool Robotic Telescope

Produced in 2015, these materials are themed around the work of the Liverpool Robotic Telescope and the National Schools’ Observatory (NSO). Through the National Schools’ Observatory (NSO) web site, registered schools can request specific observations to be...

Food

In this activity students consider the questions: Which components of food are healthy and which are not? Why should we care about this? What are the effects of the individual components of food on the human body? What do our families eat? What are the likely effects of what we eat? How can we ensure that the...

Desertec

The generation of energy with solar power plants in the desert is a highly controversial issue. In this activity students consider the questions: Which arguments do the opponents and the proponents put forward? To what extent do solar power plants have the potential to contribute to meeting Europe’s energy needs?...

Dangerous Rain

In this activity students consider the questions: Where does rain water go? How can we model the flow of rainwater in real life? What can be done to prevent flooding? When is rain dangerous? Where do floods come from? How can we reduce the damage that flooding causes? Over the last decade some parts of Europe have...

Biodiversity *suitable for home teaching*

Sovon, a Dutch bird protection organisation, counts birds. The number of greylag geese is increasing. Students are asked to investigate whether this increase is worrying for the diversity of water bird species? Students explore what the concept biodiversity means, how it can be described mathematically and what are...

Code Level 6 homes Wind Turbines Solar Panels Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDs).

The aim of the resource is to share some of the findings of an Economic and...

Carbon Footprint Toolkit *suitable for home teaching*

This BP Educational Service (BPES) resource includes factsheets describing carbon capture and storage and global carbon agreements. The resource helps students to understand more about the impacts of carbon emissions, choices for carbon reduction and alternative energy supplies.

Please note, some interactive...

Wellcome Trust: Tree of life *suitable for home teaching*

Produced by the Wellcome Trust, these resources include an interactive evolutionary tree and a video of the Tree of Life. These materials will help students to find out more about the work of Charles Darwin and evolution. The resources contain:

Tree of life video: The video is a short...

PH Scale *suitable for home teaching*

This simulation allows students to test the pH of substances like coffee, spit, and soap to determine whether each is acidic, basic, or neutral. It can be used to visualise the relative number of hydroxide ions and hydronium ions in solution, switch between logarithmic and linear scales, and investigate whether...
