Investigating Motion

In this resource, from BLOODHOUND SSC, students answer sets of questions about acceleration, velocity and motion in relation to BLOODHOUND SSC. They also investigate 'g force' and how free falling or lack of gravity affects acceleration. The students then go on to investigate the physiological effects of motion,...

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...

Speed of Sound

In this experiment, from BLOODHOUND SSC, students discover how easy it is to measure the speed of sound and increase their knowledge of acoustics, using microphones and free audio software (Audacity). The experiment takes into account differing temperatures, pressures and humidities.

This resource includes...

Biofuels

This booklet is part of the ‘Innovations in Practical Work’ series published by the Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme (SEP). Much of the energy consumption in the modern world relies on the use of oil, coal or natural gas, and these fossil fuels are non-renewable. Some people believe that biofuels, made from...

Forensic Chemistry

This booklet is part of the ‘Innovations in Practical Work’ series published by the Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme (SEP). Forensic science is widely featured in TV dramas and newspaper articles, though many people have a distorted view of this area.
