Pod 3: Cars

In this Nuffield Foundation resource, students explore our relationship with cars and other forms of transport. They start by investigating some of the health and social problems associated with increasing car ownership. They move on to consider how innovative technologies could support more healthy and...

Pod 4: Climate Change

In this Nuffield Foundation resource students begin by reviewing their understanding of the carbon cycle. They investigate the link between human activity and increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and speculate on whether this is causing global warming. They compare the carbon footprints...

Melting Behaviour

These downloadable videos and animations are part of the multimedia package Stuff and Substance, developed by the Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme (SEP). They can be used to develop the idea that mixtures do not have precise melting and boiling points. Using properties that depend on the material only to...

Evaporation of Water

These downloadable videos and animations are part of the multimedia package Stuff and Substance, developed by the Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme (SEP). They can be used to distinguish between boiling and evaporation of water below boiling point.

Boiling forms a pure sample of water in the gas state (...

Recognising Dissolving

These downloadable videos and animations are part of the multimedia package Stuff and Substance, developed by the Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme (SEP). They can be used to introduce and explain the phenomenon of dissolving.

Dissolving is recognised by the formation of a clear mixture. Before mixing,...

Solubility

These downloadable videos and animations are part of the multimedia package Stuff and Substance, developed by the Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme (SEP). They can be used to introduce the idea of solubility. Solubility is the amount of a substance that will dissolve in a certain amount of solvent.

Crystals

These downloadable videos and animations are part of the multimedia package Stuff and Substance, developed by the Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme (SEP). They can be used to develop the idea that substances in the solid state usually consist of crystals, even though this is sometimes not obvious.

The...

Change of State

These downloadable videos are part of the multimedia package Stuff and Substance, developed by the Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme (SEP). They can be used to introduce ideas of the energy changes which accompany changes of state.

Melting requires an energy input for the change from solid to liquid and...

Gas and Pressure

These downloadable videos and animations are part of the multimedia package Stuff and Substance, developed by the Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme (SEP). They can be used to develop the ideas relating to the pressure of the gas state and dependence of the boiling point on external pressure.

The pressure...
