The James Dyson Foundation: Ideas Box

This resource aims to get students excited about engineering. Students begin by considering “What is a design engineer” and then embark on a design hunt in the classroom to find an everyday object that can be improved and redesigned.

Mission: Starlight

This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry,  is about protecting astronauts from the effects of harmful UV light.

 

Students can experiment with different materials to discover which blocks UV light the best and can...

Watching a Glacier (7-11)

This activity uses satellite images of the Earth to show how a glacier has changed over almost three decades. Children are asked to measure the glacier to find out how much it has changed in size and to compare false-colour images to suggest how this helps us find out more about environmental change. This resource...

Is There Anyone Out There?

This resource was funded by the UK Space Agency and developed by ESERO-UK and CIEC Promoting Science. It is based upon the quest to discover more about the solar system through space projects such as the European Space Agency’s Aurora programme, and NASA’s Curiosity mission seeking to gather evidence of life on the...

Look to the Future: the Future Needs STEM

This careers pack, for primary schools, uses space as a context to highlight the importance 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...

Surveying populations

This animation demonstrates the range of methods that can be used to investigate different populations in a woodland ecosystem.

Cellular respiration

Respiration is the chemical process of releasing energy from organic compounds. This poster illustrates the series of enzyme-controlled reactions in which energy is transferred to produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP) from adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and...

Inside the cell

Explore the components of a typical animal cell.

Populations

What’s the first thing that pops into your mind when you read the word population? Most likely it’s the ever-increasing human population on earth.
