Battle of the Barnacles

A Catalyst article about biologists looking for patterns in the distribution of barnacle species on the sea shore. Barnacles are arthropods which live as tiny larvae in the sea and then cement themselves, head down, on suitable rocks, build a shell, poke their legs out of the top of it and start to filter feed. The...

Wind Turbine Project: Working Drawings

Produced by the Technology Enhancement Programme (TEP) these are the working drawings for producing a working wind turbine in the workshop. The turbine consists of six 130mm blades arranged on a central axle and attached via plastic gears to a dc generator.

A total of twelve, detailed drawings are included....

Observatories and Telescopes

These are images of some of the European Southern Observatory telescopes and locations. They include:

* View from above ESO's La Silla observation site in the southern part of the Atacama desert, 600 km north of Santiago de Chile. The site is 2,400 metres above sea level, providing excellent observing...

Wind Turbines: Industrial Manufacturing

These materials, from the Technology Enhancement Programme (TEP), consist of a series of photographs that illustrate the installation of wind turbines in an offshore wind farm just off the coast of North Wales.

The images can be used to illustrate a range of manufacturing and engineering processes as well as...

Wind Turbine Project: Component Parts

From the Technology Enhancement Programme (TEP), these images show the manufactured components, jigs and fixtures required to make the wind turbine project. Detailed drawings for the wind turbine can be found at this resource: wind turbine working drawings...

Strengthening Teaching and Learning of Interdependence - Classroom Materials

This is one of a suite of continuing professional development (CPD) units from the Department for Education covering the five ‘key ideas’ at Key Stage Three (cells, interdependence, particles, forces and energy). It links with the 2002 Framework for teaching...
