Fission and Fusion: a Physics Kit

This resource, produced by SEPNet and Queen Mary University of London, uses Lego to represent the building blocks of matter. Different colour and size Lego bricks are assigned to protons, neutrons and electrons. Fusion is shown by joining bricks together and fission by breaking large collections of bricks apart....

Electromagnetic Math

This series of activities from NASA take a mathematical approach to looking at electromagnetic radiation. They are intended as supplementary problems for students looking for additional challenges in mathematics and physical science from age 11 to 19 years. The problems were created to be authentic glimpses of...

Earth Math

This series of activities from NASA take a mathematical approach to looking at the Earth and its atmosphere. They are intended as supplementary problems for students looking for additional challenges in mathematics and physical science from age 11 to 19 years.

The problems were created to be authentic...

Scratch for sensing and control

This resource gives examples of Scratch 2 sensing data from Vernier USB temperature and motion sensors. Using a £10 BLE dongle it also communicates wirelessly with devices including the TI Sensor Tag2, the BBC micro:bit and the Ollie robotic toy. Scratch can be used offline or run through the Chrome browser.

Deciding Destinations KS5

The premise of this activity is that the school is sending a rover to Mars. Its mission is to search for evidence that life has ever existed there. It is the job of the class to decide where the rover should land on Mars. They will do this by working in groups and investigating six potential landing sites and...

Armageddon time?

This activity uses the context of asteroids and meteorites, and the film Armageddon, to allow students to explore kinetic energy, momentum, and critical thinking by asking them to establish whether the information presented in the film is correct. 

Curriculum links:

  • Kinetic energy.
  • Unit...

Colonisation of Mars

Produced in 2015, this resource looks at Human survival in a closed system on Mars. 

Student activities include:

• Identify the basic requirements for Human life on Earth

• Understand the concept of a closed system and understand why the Earth, a space craft and Mars are all closed systems and...

Building Images

In this activity, students create colour images from satellite data. This allows them to study how different surfaces reflect different wavelengths of light, how coloured images are created using an RGB model, and how band combinations can be chosen to examine a particular landscape effectively.

Build Your Own Universe

This resource, produced by SEPNet and Queen Mary University of London, uses Lego to represent the building blocks of matter. Different colour Lego bricks are assigned to different quarks and leptons. The quarks can be put together to make hadrons, such as protons and neutrons. The blocks can also be used to show...

Prepare your own Solar Cell

Renewable energy is generally considered as being from an energy resource that is replaced rapidly by a natural process such as power generated from the sun or from the wind. Most renewable forms of energy, other than geothermal and wave power, ultimately come from the sun. Visible light can be converted directly...
