Tides Simulator and Workshop

Produced by the National Schools Observatory, this PowerPoint workshop and accompanying flash animation explains tidal activity on Earth. The workshop takes the form of a PowerPoint presentation that explains why tides exist, why there are two tides each day and covers related topics such as spring/neap tides and...

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC)

From the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), the 'Big questions, big experiment' wall chart describes the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. It looks at the "big questions" about our Universe that scientists are trying to answer, and how the amazing LHC will help them to do so. The 'Tunnel to the...

Futurecade

Futurecade is an innovative interactive suite of games from the Science Museum that allows students to explore how science and technology impacts on their everyday lives. Futurecade’s four games are inspired by current and future technology in the fields of robotics, satellites and space junk, geo-engineering and...

Explorers

In this activity, students are required to find a safe route through a notoriously perilous region of space called the Twilight Nebula.

They will be faced with a number of different threats but can maximise their chances of survival using a series of threat assessment readouts. Students will compare fraction...
