Experiments in Science: Time Lapse Video

Richard Needham, from the National STEM Learning Centre and Network, demonstrates how to use time lapse video to speed up action that would otherwise be either too slow to notice within a normal school science lesson, or to provide opportunities to explore gradual changes outside a classroom.

The Intelligent Piece of Paper

In this activity from the CS4FN team, learners are introduced to algorithms in the context of artificial intelligence. They are challenged to beat a ‘piece of paper’ at a game of noughts and crosses. By following a simple algorithm, the piece of paper becomes very difficult to beat. The algorithm is a sequence of...

Evaluating the impact of new teaching approaches - mathematics

These videos guide you through the process of evaluating the impact of changes you make to teaching approaches in your classroom. The evaluation approaches described here will enable you to tell whether new approaches are more effective than what they have replaced. You'll be able to make evidence-informed...

Evaluating the impact of new teaching practices - computing

These videos guide you through the process of evaluating the impact of changes you make to teaching approaches in your classroom. The evaluation approaches described here will enable you to tell whether new approaches are more effective than what they have replaced. You'll be able to make evidence-informed...

Black Sea Maritime Archaeology Project: Solving problems at sea

This video and classroom task explores how the crew of the Black Sea Maritime Archaeology Project (@BlackSeaMAP) solved the problem of how to safely retrieve and store an archeological find, whilst working offshore, exploring the Bulgarian Black Sea.

The project included the discovery of the world’s...

Everyday engineering by Dallas Campbell

Dallas Campbell shows how you can get involved in engineering from your own home.  This video includes three links to engineering:

He describes a way of making a paper aeroplane that will be a good long distance flyer. 

Dallas talks about how bras require engineering design to enable them to...

Bacon sandwiches in space

Dallas Campbell talks about how engineering links to the production and packaging of foods.  He gives the example of the bacon sandwich that was designed for Tim Peake to eat in microgravity on board the International Space Station.  Both the bread itself, and the can it was contained in, had to be designed...

How bras inspired the spacesuit

Dallas Campbell talks about how bras require engineering design to enable them to be both comfortable and supportive. He explains how a bra manufacturer was involved in the first designs of space suits for NASA.

Science Education Tracker

Young people’s views on science education and careers.

Water and sanitation videos

Practical Action helps local communities in the developing world gain access to services such as water and sanitation, vital for a decent quality of life. Some examples of how they go about doing this and the technologies involved are demonstrated in these videos:

  • Dying for a drink - solar powered...
