Glowsticks

Professor Hal Sosabowski carries out a visually impressive demonstration using the hydrogen peroxide and oxylate esters inside glowsticks to show chemiluminescence, energy changes and rates of reaction. He mixes the chemicals in both standard and ultra-bright glowsticks, showing how the concentration of reactants...

Life in the Water

This Cape Farewell video clip shows that phytoplankton and zooplankton have a crucial place in the Arctic food chain which is highly sensitive to change. The Cape Farewell scientists need to study plankton to understand how they respond to global climate change.

Activity A - Food chains uses the Arctic...

Where Would You Photograph? (7-11)

In this activity children take on the role of Earth observation scientists submitting a request for an image they would like for their research. This gives them the opportunity to consider the possibilities of pictures taken from orbit (and the limitations) and to write scientifically for a specific audience. It...
