These resources provide information on how to do extended science projects and how to conduct them ethically, together with some additional advice for teachers and schools.

Genes, genomes and health *suitable for home teaching*

Published by the Wellcome Trust, the 'Big Picture' explores issues around biology and medicine.

In recent years, great progress has been made in genome sequencing and understanding the huge amount of data produced. Our genes play a key part in making us who we are, but how can science help us understand our...

Fat

Published by the Wellcome Trust, the 'Big Picture' explores issues around biology and medicine.

Fat is a word that carries a lot of weight, conjuring up topics as diverse as obesity, hibernating animals, and what we eat and how we cook it. This issue of the Big Picture looks at the fats and lipids to find...

Technologies for computational analysis of sports and exercise

This resource focuses on some research data into the prevention of anterior cruciate ligaments (ACL) injury. The activities included in this resource will enable students to develop their ability to evaluate claims based on science through critical analysis of the methodology, evidence and conclusions, both...

Feeding a growing world

Students examine the sugar content of potatoes in relation to emerging interest in the carcinogen acrylamide produced when potatoes are cooked at high temperatures. Employing cutting-edge techniques to genetically modify E. coli bacteria, they will insert the jellyfish gfp gene to make the...

The female face of civil engineering

This booklet illustrates ten case studies of civil engineers describing their career paths and options within civil engineering.  The publication is aimed at school students to inspire and interest them in engineering careers and to emphasise the value of STEM subjects.  

Plants

This issue of Big Picture provides lots of interesting information about flowering plants and their uses. 

The plant hormones animation explores the action of indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) and shows how scientists used experimental evidence to explain the role of auxins in a phototrophic response.

The...

Secondary Case Studies

These three case studies look at aspects of the Rolls-Royce business and how it expands and develops its activities through acquisition plans, knowledge of it's place in a competitive world and partnerships with other organisations. The case studies were produced by the Times and was part of a series investigating...

Cell Signalling *suitable for home teaching*

Produced in 2014, this resource looks at cell signalling when the hormone adrenaline binds to receptors on the surface of the target cell. The resource sheets describe how the original hormonal signal is amplified through a cascade reaction.

Supporting videos explain key areas of working scientifically,...
