Efficiency

This video uses a comparison between an LED light and filament bulb to introduce efficiency (η). 

The equation, %efficiency (η) = (useful energy out/total energy in) x100 is explained and then linked to rate of energy transfer (P=E/t).

Your career in cancer research

This booklet provides useful information on a variety of routes into a career in cancer research including the fields of mathematics, computer science, chemistry, biochemistry, physics, medicine and non-research roles.

Mismatch repair

This animation illustrates how mistakes made during DNA replication are repaired. 

During DNA replication mistakes can occur as DNA polymerase copies the two strands. The wrong nucleotide can be incorporated into one of the strands causing a mismatch. Normally there should be an "A" opposite a "T" and "G"...

Engineering Careers - Principal Engineer

In this inspiring video, John Eldridge who is a Principal Engineer explains why curiosity is so important when it comes to STEM skills.  He also discusses that this job is being involved with some of the biggest machines on Earth and the varied routes you can take to get into engineering.

Cryptography

Quantum computers will revolutionise secure communications, and will make some current encryption methods obsolete. This activity, takes in cutting-edge research at the UK Quantum Technology hubs but begins with a firm grounding in the fundamentals of encryption. Unplugged...

Diffraction

Practical use of diffraction gratings include emission spectra as well as explorations of the wave-particle nature of light and the interference patterns that emerge.

This resource supports teachers to build on established lab...

Quantum Tech Teacher guide GPS and Trilateration

Satellite navigation is a key technology for today’s society, allowing for global navigation on land, at sea and in the air. The technology depends upon accurate atomic clocks, which help us pinpoint our position to within a few metres.

Quantum Tech Student Activity Laser Cooling

Lasers can be used to heat things up, and also to cool them down. Using carefully tuned lasers, scientists in the UK quantum technology hubs are able to slow atoms down to just a few centimetres per second, colder than the background of the universe.
