Recycling Plastics *suitable for home teaching*

This film, from Twig World, looks at the differences between thermosetting, thermo softening and partially biodegradable plastics, and how they can be recycled.

The key points made in the film are:

A lot of plastic is thrown away and most is non-biodegradable Plastic can be recycled using mechanical...

Animate materials

Animate materials can sense, move, change shape, and adapt to their environment to fulfil particular goals. Across the scientific world, researchers are developing tools and ideas, many of them inspired by the mechanisms of nature, to create materials that have lifelike properties.

This set of resources,...

Electron Diffraction Tube

In this video, produced by the National STEM Learning Centre and Network and the Institute of Physics, Alom Shaha explains the elements of an electron diffraction tube and how to use one to demonstrate a diffraction pattern. The video is aimed at teachers but it could also be used with older students to...

Electric Motor

Produced by the National STEM Centre and the Institute of Physics, this video shows a simple method for making an electric motor using a battery, strong magnets and a copper coil. It allows students to investigate Fleming's left hand rule and the forces generated in an electric motor.

Plankton and Global Warming *suitable for home teaching*

This Cape Farewell video clip features a discussion about the three important carbon cycles at work in the oceans and their place in global warming.

In Activity I - Carbon cycle, students use the video to build up...

Thermal Conductivity

These two short videos, produced by the National STEM Learning Centre, illustrate the process of thermal conductivity. The first video shows a demonstration of thermal conductivity using ice, plastic and aluminium blocks. Alom Shaha explains the process involved....

Algal Balls - Photosynthesis Using Algae Wrapped in Jelly Balls

This reliable practical allows students to use algae to look at the rate of photosynthesis with quantifiable and replicable results. In this protocol, the green alga Scenedesmus quadricauda is immobilised in alginate beads. Changes in the colour of hydrogen carbonate indicator solution (also called...
