Designing Investigations

This resource, from the University of Nottingham, describes a number of investigations which could be carried out in heathland habitats. Heathlands are excellent habitats to use for designing and carrying out experiments. Plants are often relatively easy to identify when compared with other habitats and...

Introduction to Lowland Heathlands

This resource is an interactive activity which aims to provide an introduction to the lowland heathland habitat. The five topics relating to lowland heathlands covered by the resources include:
• The biotic components of lowland heathlands, focusing on plants
• The biotic components of lowland...

Becoming a STEM Enthusiast

These activities have been developed for the National HE STEM Programme to be used in conjunction with the video resources found in this collection.

Activities for staff developers contains activities aimed at Higher Education staff developers. The first activity outlines...

Spectroscopy in a Suitcase

This outreach programme aimed to build upon good practice from the Royal Society of Chemistry's (RSC) project Chemistry for our Future, and to develop new activities which could then be used with the RSC’s Spectroscopy in a Suitcase (SIAS) equipment. It explored appropriate contexts which may appeal to students...

Moths, Adaptations and Predators

In order to avoid predators, the caterpillars of some species of moths rest during the day by masquerading as twigs, well-camouflaged and keeping their bodies rigid and still. The aim of the investigation is to determine if caterpillars of the peppered moth show a preferred angle of rest.

Students look at a...

Safety at Work

A number of applied school science courses recommend that students should make a site visit to some aspect of the chemical industry. Such visits are often difficult to organise and some areas are almost impossible to get access to.

To partly address the needs of applied science courses and some A-level...

Build Your Own Robot Arm

This resource sets the challenge of designing a robot arm which can pick up a cup from a defined distance. Students then evaluate their design and suggest modifications.

They are also asked to consider which scientific and algebraic principles could be applied to the activity as well as considering their...

I've Got the Power (Ages 16-19)

These four experiments look at what limits our performance during exercise and how we produce the energy that we require to move our bodies during different types of exercise.

In these experiments, the role of aerobic and anaerobic respiration are compared and students investigate how their bodies use...

Trigonometric Ratios of Any Angle

The objectives of this PowerPoint are for students to: • understand what is meant by: circular functions; quadrants; positive angles; negative angles.

• recall the main characteristics of the graphs of y = sin x, y = cos x and y = tan x.
• consider the main trigonometric ratios in all 4 quadrants....

Manufacturing Ammonia

This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry ‘Challenging Plants’ resource pack, is a teacher presentation which provides background information on the industrial processes involved in the manufacture of ammonia. It describes each step in the process and includes details of the raw materials and how they are...
