Chlorophyll fluorescence

From Solar Spark, this activity allows students to see how chlorophyll can be energised and how this causes it to fluoresce. Chlorophyll in plant leaves absorb red light and pass the energy on to other parts of the plant, hence leaves look green. But if there is nowhere for the energy to go, it gets released as...

Starchaser Rocket Factory 1

Ideal for all ages and key stages the Starchaser Rocket Factory 1 enables students to experiment with Newton’s Laws of motion by building and flying their own compressed air powered model rockets. Safe, clean, educational and fun, Rocket Factory 1 is supervised by a Starchaser Educator and...

Brain Speed Test

This is something we run in primary schools but it is also fun for older children.

You will need a laptop/computer with Internet connection and a tailor's tape measure that is at least as long as the arm length of anyone taking part in this.

Instructions are in the attached word document and  there...

Clock reaction

Two translucent liquids are mixed. At first, nothing happens: the resulting solution is still translucent. Suddenly, with no warning, the solution turns blue-black all at once.

Curriculum links include redox reactions, rate of reaction, kinetics

Modelling Climate Change

This booklet is part of the ‘Innovations in Practical Work’ series published by the Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme (SEP) and produced in partnership with the Walker Institute for Climate System Research. Climate scientists do not have a ‘climate in a test tube’ to try out their ideas, so to understand the...

Data-logging with BBC micro:bits and MakeCode for modelling with Excel and GeoGebra.

Recent developments in MakeCode now make data-capture from micro:bits very simple via the USB cable.  The data can be graphed in real time in MakeCode and exproted as CSV files.  Using tools such as Excel and GeoGebra's Spreadsheet View, the data can be manipulated, analysed and modelled.  With a pair of...

The toolkit is a ready-to-use digital collection of modules aimed at
teenagers to be used by teachers, informal learning organisations,
researchers and industry.
The aim is to engage young people and especially girls in STEM
and in the discovery of the variety of STEM related careers in a
...

Cracking Hydrocarbons

In this classic experiment, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, students heat a large molecule with a catalyst and collect the gas produced. The gas produced is tested with bromine water for the presence of a double bond. The resource is set out as teachers' notes followed by the students' page which presents the...

Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Produced for Future Morph, this resource includes a video in which a student talks about his course in electrical and electronic engineering. He describes how one project was to make and test a circuit that included a light-sensitive resistor. A second activity describes a class experiment...
