Cheops mission video

 With the aid of animations, ESA’s CHEOPS (CHaracterising ExOPlanet Satellite) is introduced.

 The video shows how the European space telescope is being used to determine the main characteristics of known extrasolar planets. Launched in Dec. 2019 it is ESA’s first mission in the Cosmic Vision science...

Build Your Own Universe

This resource, produced by SEPNet and Queen Mary University of London, uses Lego to represent the building blocks of matter. Different colour Lego bricks are assigned to different quarks and leptons. The quarks can be put together to make hadrons, such as protons and neutrons. The blocks can also be used to show...

Photosynthesis *suitable for home teaching*

This film, from Twig World, journeys into the chloroplast to show how plants convert sunlight into usable chemical energy through the process of photosynthesis. The key points covered in the film are: •Leaves are small solar-powered food factories. •Through a process called photosynthesis they make their own food...

Respiration and Photosynthesis

This animation allows students to view the processes of photosynthesis and respiration. In particular, it tackles the common misconception among students that respiration in plants does not take place at the same time as photosynthesis...
