Deciding Destinations KS5

The premise of this activity is that the school is sending a rover to Mars. Its mission is to search for evidence that life has ever existed there. It is the job of the class to decide where the rover should land on Mars. They will do this by working in groups and investigating six potential landing sites and...

Armageddon time?

This activity uses the context of asteroids and meteorites, and the film Armageddon, to allow students to explore kinetic energy, momentum, and critical thinking by asking them to establish whether the information presented in the film is correct. 

Curriculum links:

  • Kinetic energy.

Autonomous navigation

Dr. Mark Woods explains how the rover technologies must be partly autonomous, since the signals from Earth to Mars take too long for every command to be send from Earth.  The technologies developed for space, also have applications on Earth.

This video is part of a series of ten which look at the one of the...

The Webb Telescope in Fusion 360

These guides contain instructions on how to build a 3D CAD model of the Webb Space Telescope using Fusion 360. The Webb Space Telescope is a space telescope that will be the successor to the Hubble Space Telescope. Creating your own Webb Telescope in Fusion 360 involves...

Kinetic theory: box triboelectric

Kinetic theory: box triboelectric

This video shows ESA astronaut, Tim Peake, attempting to demonstrate the collisions of particles in a gas - kinetic theory.  You can observe the balls being attracted to the side of the box through triboelectric charging. Teachers’ notes can be found here.
