Space Shuttle Mission Images

The space shuttle has been used by NASA as a re-usable orbiter since 1981. The programme's last flight is scheduled for 2011. These resources show all stages of a mission, from launch to landing. It includes a video of the launch of the space shuttle Atlantis.

Rocket Images and Video

NASA's Space Shuttle may be a well-known launch vehicle, but the majority of launches still take place using rockets. These regularly carry satellites into orbit. These materials show images of rockets, such as the Saturn V which powered the Apollo missions and current Delta and Atlas rockets. There is also a...

Controlled Assessments and Sustainability Issues

From Practical Action, this resource is intended to help students to think about how they can include sustainability throughout their tasks, from specifications, through to evaluation by using an eco-design tool.

Solar System Image and Information Set

From NASA, this is a set of high quality images and information about the solar system. The set of materials features the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Earth’s Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, asteroids, comets, meteors and meteorites, the Kuiper Belt and Oort Cloud, and moons of the solar system...

Galaxies

Produced by the European Southern Observatory, this collection contains spectacular images of galaxies. Images include:
* Spiral galaxy NGC 1232, based on three exposures in ultra-violet, blue and red light, respectively.
* Central parts of the starburst galaxy NGC 1313. The very active state of this...

Module 1: Darwin's Bees

Produced by the Charles Darwin Trust, these resources allow students to consider some of Darwin's studies on bees and other social insects. Through this context, students are able to develop their skills of scientific enquiry, observation, data analysis and communication.

The activities allow students to:...

Module 2: Artificial Selection

From the Charles Darwin Trust, these materials help students to understand the process of artificial selection. Darwin pointed out that all animals and plants show variation. He proposed that breeders select the variants they think desirable.

Students undertake a range of activities in which they make...

Wind Turbines: Industrial Manufacturing

These materials, from the Technology Enhancement Programme (TEP), consist of a series of photographs that illustrate the installation of wind turbines in an offshore wind farm just off the coast of North Wales.

The images can be used to illustrate a range of manufacturing and engineering processes as well as...

ARKive on Tour

Produced by ARKive, these materials are designed to teach students aged 11-14 about the variety of habitats worldwide and the diversity of species found in each habitat. The activity also highlights topics including interdependence, adaptation and how species evolve specialised features.

Working in groups,...
