Redshift

This Teaching Astronomy and Space video clip, from the Institute of Physics (IOP), Teachers TV and the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), shows a simple demonstration that can be used to help students understand red shift and blue shift of waves emitted by a moving object. Using the school yard,...

Gold Award: Future Travel

These materials look at three possible projects that relate to space exploration:

* Communications project - students gather information about space exploration before making a presentation on the problems to be overcome with past and possible future benefits of space travel

* Practical project -...

Episode 101: Introduction to Circuits

These activities, from the Institute of Physics, look at electrical circuits. They provide a review of previous knowledge and introduce the language needed to cope with the greater depth of learning at post-16 level. Activities include: • a discussion about electrical circuits to reinforce knowledge and highlight...

Spectral sounds: investigating the spectrum of sound and wave phenomena

​This resource describes how a frequency analyser app can be used to investigate the properties of sound created by a variety of musical instruments and comparing these with simpler sounds from, for instance, tuning forks. Students...

Silver Award: Triathlon

These materials look at three possible projects that relate to the bicycle used by an athlete in a triathlon: * Communications project - students gather information and give advice about which bike is suitable for a range of users. * Practical project - students undertake practical experiments to investigate the...

Gold Award: Triathlon

These materials look at three possible projects that relate to the sports equipment a triathlete may use:

* Communications project - students act as members of a research team that develops prosthetic limbs and running shoes. Funding for this work is required. Students devise an approach to suitable...

Episode 202: Forces in Equilibrium

Produced by the Institute of Physics, this learning episode contains demonstrations and practical activities through which students learn about the conditions for static equilibrium (excluding moments of forces).

Students look at:
• forces on a horizontal washing line with a weight in the middle...

Episode 203: Turning Effects

This learning episode from the Institute of Physics, uses discussion and experimental work to help students investigate the application of moments beyond the simple 'see-saw' model.

Activities lead to an application of moments to general equilibrium situations.

Students look at:
* moments and...
