Aspects of Secondary Students’ Understanding of Chemistry

The report from the Children’s Learning in Science Project (CLIS) gives an account of a number of aspects of students’ understanding of chemistry including:
*What meanings do students attribute to the terms ‘element’, ‘mixture’ and ‘compound’?
*What meanings do students attribute to commonly used...

Electromagnetic Math

This series of activities from NASA take a mathematical approach to looking at electromagnetic radiation. They are intended as supplementary problems for students looking for additional challenges in mathematics and physical science from age 11 to 19 years. The problems were created to be authentic glimpses of...

Einstein's Birthday Party

Aimed at primary level, the twelve activities within this pack explore forces and solids, liquids and gases in the context of a birthday party for Albert Einstein. Designed to demonstrate key ideas and concepts and to spark an interest in science, they could be used in class or within a science week or club. The...

Eggnaut

In this resource from ESA, students' mission is to design and build a vehicle that will protect their Eggnaut from the perils of re-entry from space. The objective is to have your Eggnaut survive the fall without a crack. The project can be adpated for either primary or secondary students. The resource was produced...

Earth Sun Moon Distances

Basketball Earth
This resource uses a basketball as the Earth to set up a scale model to the distance to the Moon, satellites and distances such as the thickness of the atmosphere and the height of transatlantic jets. Students must do a card matching exercise to match objects to...

Earth Math

This series of activities from NASA take a mathematical approach to looking at the Earth and its atmosphere. They are intended as supplementary problems for students looking for additional challenges in mathematics and physical science from age 11 to 19 years.

The problems were created to be authentic...

Domestic Science

Aimed at primary level, this pack investigates the science in everyday life. They investigate a range of topics including: irreversible reactions involved in cooking, the density of liquids, microorganisms, properties of materials and electricity. Designed to demonstrate key ideas and concepts and to spark an...

This collection of three resources asks students to:

*design and model the physical elements of a robot arm and demonstrate how this could be achieved using a smart material. Students can then subsequently use this information to support the design of a robot arm.

*design and model a robot arm in 2D,...

Daytime astronomy

An activity where students use telescopes or binoculars to project an image of the sun onto a screen. Using a microwave oven, they then calculate the speed of light.
