Electric Motor

Produced by the National STEM Centre and the Institute of Physics, this video shows a simple method for making an electric motor using a battery, strong magnets and a copper coil. It allows students to investigate Fleming's left hand rule and the forces generated in an electric motor.

Chemistry Captured: Video Materials for Teachers of Chemistry

This DVD of video clips was produced by the Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme in partnership with the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) and the School of Chemistry, Cardiff University. It offers students the opportunity to view a range of reactions at close range with the ability of pausing and replaying key...

Whoosh bottle (teach with space)

In this activity, alcohol and air are mixed in a large plastic water bottle before being ignited, to simulate the physics principles of chemical rocket engines. The students will observe a rapid reaction accompanied by a dramatic “whoosh” sound and flames. They will discuss the...

Tim Peake

This video is a message to ESERO-UK from European Space Agency astronaut Tim Peake. He talks about studying STEM subjects and how he became an astronaut. The video includes images of a launch, Tim engaging in various astronaut training exercises and the International Space Station, where Tim will be for six months...

Mini-whoosh bottle (teach with space)

In this practical investigation, students will perform a combustion reaction using a mixture of alcohol and air in a plastic water bottle. The students will observe a rapid reaction accompanied by a dramatic ‘whoosh’ sound, simulating what happens when fuels are lit during a real rocket...

Mini lectures: neutrinos

This mini lecture from the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings provides a historical perspective on the work of Pauli in postulating the existence of the 'ghost particle' with no electrical charge and virtually no mass. Following the discovery of the neutrino and its associated 'flavours', the lecture then explores...

Mini lectures: subatomic particles

This mini lecture from the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings takes a historical view of sub-atomic particle theory from the earliest work of Thompson and, subsequently, of Rutherford. Nobel prizewinners' recorded speeches provide the soundtrack to their discoveries of nuclei, protons and, then, neutrinos.  The...

Mini lectures: imaging in science

This mini lecture from the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings looks at the electromagnetic spectrum and how various wavelengths have been used in imaging. Starting with a history of telescopy and microscopy, the lecture brings the viewer right up to date with a section on the James Webb telescope and high-resolution...

Mini lectures: science, ethics and society

This 11-minute lecture from the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings explores the ideas of ethics, morality and values. The lecture describes the part played by the Nobel intergenerational meetings in Lindau in reminding scientists and society of their responsibilities. Hippocrates' view that "man belongs to nature;...

Mini lectures: quantum mechanics

This lecture from the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings outlines the development of the field of quantum mechanics. The lecture describes the work of Planck, Einstein and Bohr and includes the idea of wave-particle duality, the photoelectric effect to Bohr's model of atomic structure. The lecture's emphasis is on...
