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.

Tim Peake public presentation

This presentation was produced by the UK Space Agency for Tim Peake's mission to the International Space Station in 2015/16.

Magnetic Earth

This AstroPi resource helps secondary school students investigate the magnetic field of the Earth. The series of activities develops from basic principles of magnetism through to some understanding of the nature and cause of the Earth's magnetism.

The guide links to several other eLibrary resources and a...

People like me mothers and daughters session

This session aims to help students to make career decisions, as they can think about how they will fit in when choosing their own future directions
The session highlights which job roles can suit individual personalities – these roles are not restricted to STEM industries but where STEM knowledge is...

Managing Behaviour for Learning MOOC November 2015: Webinar 1 outputs

Webinar 1 was held at 7.00pm GMT on 10th November 2015. The following links provide access to various outputs:

Quantum Key Distribution

Produced in 2015, these resources look at the development of encoding messages and how technology and science has developed to allow us to keep messages secure. Looking at unintuitive quantum properties of light, Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principal and entanglement, students will see how keys can be shared to...

Brain in a Bag

This unplugged activity from Peter McOwan and Paul Curzon mingles computer science with biology. A group activity is used that mimics the firing of neurons within the brain. These trigger other neurons to fire – these can be compared to AND gates in logic circuits.

The ‘brain in a bag’ kits used in the...

Seeing Temperatures

This activity allows students to investigate how images are produced from data streams by using first a spreadsheet and then an image-processing program. They then go on to see how the usefulness of such a monochromatic image may be enhanced by using lookup tables and calibration. The materials used focus on the...
