PH Scale Basics

With this simulation students can test the pH of everyday liquids such as coffee, spit, and soap to determine whether each is acidic, basic, or neutral. They can also investigate how adding more of a liquid or diluting with water affects pH.

Sample learning outcomes include:

*Determine if a solution...

Reactants Products and Leftovers

The simulation can be used to:

*Relate the real-world example of making sandwiches to chemical reactions.

*Describe what limiting reactant means using examples of sandwiches and chemicals at a particle level.

*Identify the limiting reactant in a chemical reaction.

*Explain the Law of...

Under Pressure

This simulation can be used to explore pressure under and above water and see how pressure changes as you change fluids, gravity, container shapes, and volume.

Sample learning objectives include:

*Describe how pressure changes in air and water as a function of depth.

*Describe what variables...

Wave on a String

In the simulation students can watch a string vibrate in slow motion. You can wiggle the end of the string and make waves, or adjust the frequency and amplitude of an oscillator. The simulation also allows you to adjust the damping and tension.

Sample learning outcomes include:

*Discuss wave...

Light Bulbs

In this activity students make a comparison of conventional and energy saving light bulbs and ask the questions:

• How can individuals contribute towards the needs of society?
• Why have traditional light bulbs been abolished by the EU?

In Germany, as in many other European countries,...

Fetch, Execute, Decode

This is a Flash animation demonstrating the fetch and execute cycle. The aim is to visually show the interaction between the different parts of the CPU and the movement along buses.

The model is hypothetical, so does not accurately reflect the components of real processors.

It would be most useful...

Psychology of Attraction - Who do we like and Why?

A workshop plan and resources backed up by notes of related scientific studies that were developed by Cinelive and Professor Viren Swami of Anglia Ruskin University.

These were delivered as part of 'What's the Grey Matter with Gregory?', an immersive arts/science project delivered across the UK in 2015/2016...

Attracting Hormones - What and Who do we like?

A series of resources developed by Cinelive alongside Professor Dave Hornby of the University of Sheffield, Professor Frank Hucklebridge of the University of Westminster and Professor John Wass of Oxford University.

These resources provide the opportunity for a group to explore the history of our...

'Maths in Space' workshop

A series of three activities exploring the mathematics behind space exploration. The resources cover:

  • Estimating the distances involved in space
  • Communication/describing mathematical shapes- would students perform well during a space walk?
  •  Survival on the moon- calculation of...
