Video on the Physics of Food - The magic in milk

What do milk, salad dressing and mayonnaise have in common? They all are emulsions, and that allows them to taste great!

The full video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6GsSYu4REc) is a fun way of...

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 Transit Method

In this activity, developed by the Institute of Physics, students use a lamp and polystyrene balls to model how astronomers detect exoplanets using the transit method. After completing this activity, students should: *Understand that the transit of a planet in front of its star temporarily reduces the star’s...

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...

Fun-Size

These Fun-Size materials, from the Association for Science Education (ASE) are short 5-15 minute activities that enliven lessons. These are part of the SYCD AKA Science collection. They range from short games and word plays through to quick demonstrations. Fun-size is particularly useful when you are working...

Exoplanet atmospheres

In this activity developed by the Institute of Physics, students use simple diffraction gratings to observe the spectra from different sources, and deduce how scientists can work out which chemicals are present in an exoplanet’s atmosphere. When an exoplanet passes in front of its star, some of the starlight is...

Day and Night, Seasons

In this activity developed by the Institute of Physics, students model the motion of a planet around a star and investigate how day and night and seasons may be different on other planets. Working in pairs or small groups, students demonstrate night and day and seasons to each other. They can then go on to model...
