Explaining evolution

These diagnostic questions and response activities (contained in the zip file) support students in being able to:

  • Recall that all living organisms need energy for life processes, which is provided by cellular respiration.
  • Distinguish between cellular respiration and breathing, including the...

Ditch the dirt

This challenge enables pupils to model and test filters as a way of making dirty water cleaner. It can also be used to explore ways of making water safe to drink.  Curriculum links include separation techniques and pure substances.

The challenge can provide a focus for National Science and Engineering Week,...

Beat the Flood STEM challenge

In this resource, students use their STEM skills to help them design and build a model of a flood- proof house. Activities to help them with their design include testing materials (for strength and absorbency) and structures. Set on a fictitious island coping with the devastating effects of flooding caused by...

The Liverpool Robotic Telescope

Produced in 2015, these materials are themed around the work of the Liverpool Robotic Telescope and the National Schools’ Observatory (NSO). Through the National Schools’ Observatory (NSO) web site, registered schools can request specific observations to be...

Solar Car

In this activity, students explore the questions: What are the main sources of air pollution? What is the impact of transport emissions on air pollution and the natural environment? What can we do to reduce air pollution coming from transport? To what extent can emissions be reduced if solar powered cars instead of...

Light Bulbs

In this activity students make a comparison of conventional and energy saving light bulbs and ask the questions: How can individuals contribute towards the needs of society? Why have traditional light bulbs been abolished by the EU? In Germany, as in many other European countries, conventional light bulbs are to be...
