Electric Motor

Produced by the National STEM Centre and the Institute of Physics, this video shows a simple method for making an electric motor using a battery, strong magnets and a copper coil. It allows students to investigate Fleming's left hand rule and the forces generated in an electric motor.

Chemistry Captured: Video Materials for Teachers of Chemistry

This DVD of video clips was produced by the Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme in partnership with the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) and the School of Chemistry, Cardiff University. It offers students the opportunity to view a range of reactions at close range with the ability of pausing and replaying key...

Whoosh bottle (teach with space)

In this activity, alcohol and air are mixed in a large plastic water bottle before being ignited, to simulate the physics principles of chemical rocket engines. The students will observe a rapid reaction accompanied by a dramatic “whoosh” sound and flames. They will discuss the...

Tim Peake

This video is a message to ESERO-UK from European Space Agency astronaut Tim Peake. He talks about studying STEM subjects and how he became an astronaut. The video includes images of a launch, Tim engaging in various astronaut training exercises and the International Space Station, where Tim will be for six months...

Tim Peake Mission Overview Video

In this interview, Tim Peake discusses the Principia mission. Named after Isaac Newton’s text Naturalis Principia Mathematica, ESA’s Principia mission will be the eighth long-duration mission to the International Space Station.

British astronaut Tim Peake will be launched from Baikonur in Kazakhstan onboard...

Space Case

Spacecraft materials kit: the challenge

Spacecraft materials kit: classroom demonstration

Investigate properties of materials and decide which would be suitable for use on a spacecraft, in this resource aimed at upper primary children. A PowerPoint presentation, which includes an introduction from...

Once upon a time

Join Rosetta and Philae on their journey to rendezvous with a comet in these animated videos. The fairytale begins at launch and follows the comet-chasing duo on their voyage to Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. Each stage of the mission is brought to life and explained in a child-friendly way, including: the...

Mini-whoosh bottle (teach with space)

In this practical investigation, students will perform a combustion reaction using a mixture of alcohol and air in a plastic water bottle. The students will observe a rapid reaction accompanied by a dramatic ‘whoosh’ sound, simulating what happens when fuels are lit during a real rocket...

Emergency Communications

Engineers are vital when a disaster strikes. When there are floods, hurricanes or earthquakes, it is engineers that are needed. As the engineer rescue team, students are challenged to develop an engineering solution to ensure communications between two towns can be maintained. Students must: 1. Design and build...

Table Tennis Server

Students work in teams to design and make a prototype device that will serve tennis balls consistently across a table tennis table. The server must fit securely on the edge of the table and serve at least four balls accurately and precisely in the same position and allow the ball to be returned. In this...
