Food and Diet

This issue of the Big Picture, from the Wellcome Trust, looks at the role that food plays not only in human physiology but also in the individual's lives. Food is about so much more than sustenance. Food choice touches on many aspects of human life: culture, identity, religion, relationships, mood, fashion and...

TRUMP BaBar Resource Package: Posters/Leaflets

The TRUMP BaBar Resource Package, from the Particle Physics and Astronomy Research Council (PPARC), included three colour posters/leaflets about matter, antimatter and the BaBar experiment. The posters help to explain how the BaBar experiment was designed to study the interactions between B and B-bar mesons as part...

Episode 539: Deep Inelastic Scattering

In this learning episode, from the Institute of Physics, students use an analogue experiment to illustrate electron scattering by quarks. In the model, magnets are concealed in a box. Their poles represent ‘charges’ which are probed using a freely-suspended magnet. This helps to demonstrate that each of the...

JIVE Posters

Produced by JIVE (Joint Interventions), this set of information posters are for employers to illustrate how organisations can support and inspire women to enter and progress in Science, Engineering Technology and the Built Environment.

More Maths Grads Posters

Produced by More Maths Grads, these bright posters are intended for use in schools to illustrate the range of opportunities that mathematics can open. These include the aerospace industry, architecture, navigation technologies, biological sciences, music and sport.

ExoMars Wall Chart

Produced by the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), this colour wall chart describes ExoMars, the second European Space Agency (ESA) mission to visit Mars. ExoMars is part of a joint two-part mission funded by ESA and NASA. In 2016 the ESA-led mission will launch an orbiter and short-lived lander. The...

Exercise, Energy and Movement

Produced by the Wellcome Trust, this issue of the Big Picture looks at the physiology and sociology of exercise and movement.

For humans, movement is for more than just basic survival. They move for fun, to compete and to be healthy. This resource looks at the biological systems that keep humans moving...

British Geological Survey: Climate Through Time

Produced by the British Geological Survey, this poster illustrates how changing climate has influenced the formation of rocks in the UK.

Many rock-forming environments are directly influenced by climate. Were local rocks formed in a desert, or a tropical swamp, or on a cold seabed? What evidence can be...

Physics - Simple Harmonic Motion (SHM)

From the Integrating Mathematical Problem Solving project by MEI, this series of activities explores how mechanical oscillations are important in many areas of everyday life. Sometimes they are useful, for example the motion of the suspension on a car, sometimes they are fun, for example a fairground 'pirate ship'...

The Structure of Matter

This poster looks at the structure of matter. One side of the poster discusses the limits of imaging with light and the use of electron microscopes, and looks at the 20th century pioneers – from J. J. Thomson’s plum pudding model, through Rutherford and Chadwick’s advances in understanding the nucleus, to the use...
