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...

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.

Product analysis: impacts on people and the environment

This resource from Practical Action includes a presentation and worksheets which give Key Stage Three and Four students opportunities to understand more about the impact of existing and new products on people and the environment. The presentation is packed with useful activities to reinforce students' learning. 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...

VIDEO BLOG ON AN INFECTIOUS DISEASE

I have been teaching Diseases and Infections, an interesting BTEC Level 3 module on microbes, diseases, the immune sustem and the impact infections/diseases have on society. I feel that I would like to make it a personalised journey for each student to pass on to another student by watching a 1-2 min mini...

STEM and STEAM for Cartography

Mini Map Makers is creating a Poster for STEM and STEAM for Cartography. How Cartography interacts with the elements! 

This is working progress and a draft copy will be out soon!

Climate Change - Who Is in Control?

Produced by Practical Action, this role play activity activity helps students explore who should take responsibility for reducing the effects of climate change.

Students use role play involving different perspectives to promote discussion and debate. Designed to take place over two to three lessons, the...

Evidence for the frontline: more questions than answers

This  Powerpoint presentation from the May 2016 STEM Research Conference  explains the background to the Evidence for the Frontline (E4F) scheme which was intentended to develop and test ways of enhancing...

Modelling micro:bit data with the Bitty Data Logger App

The free Bitty Data Logger for Android and Apple devices allows you to capture sensor data from the micro:bit's accelerometers, magnetometers and temperature sensors.  A small file needs to be flashed to the micro:bit to enable bluetooth communication with your mobile device, which will also allow you to calibrate...
