Static Testing of a Model Rocket

This investigation, from BLOODHOUND SSC, uses a datalogger and force sensor to measure the thrust of a model rocket engine. The results can be analysed to predict the acceleration and speed of a model vehicle. The resource includes detailed instructions on how to conduct the experiment, including health and safety...

Spectra

This resource contains two activities and accompanying teachers’ notes.

Spectra: A tale of two elements
Students must analyse data and review scientific ideas to explain observations made of the spectrum of the Sun.

Spectra: Solar fingerprints...

Space Weather Math

This series of activities from NASA take a mathematical approach to looking at space weather. 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 modern...

Space Weather Effects

This resource contains two activities and accompanying teachers’ notes.

Effect on a solar telescope
Using images from the SoHO satellite, students make an estimate the speed of charged particles in a Coronal Mass Ejection from the Sun.

Space weather and...

Space Math I - VI

This series of activities from NASA are based on a weekly series of space science problems distributed to teachers in the US, from 2004 to 2010. They were intended for students looking for additional challenges in the mathematics and physical science curriculum, from ages 9 to 19 years.

The problems were...

Sounds Like Science

Aimed at primary level, this pack contains twenty activities which explore the links between science and music. Linked to the topic of sound, the activities investigate: how vibrations travel through different materials, making instrument on which the notes may be changed, creating animal noises using voices and...

Sounds Amazing

There’s sound and music all around us! This programme has pupils exploring the science of music and sound, creating music and instruments with a range of found objects, and even finding music in unlikely places.

The activities are introduced with a quick objective and a preparation guide. Individuals or...

Solar Tornadoes

This resource uses the context of tornadoes in the solar atmosphere to investigate circular motion and energy changes. A hole is drilled in the bottom of a washing up bowl and orange pith can be used to track the motion of the water when draining through the bottom and creating a vortex. The Key Stage Three...

Solar Math

This series of activities from NASA take a mathematical approach to looking at the Sun-Earth system. They are intended as supplementary problems for students looking for additional challenges in mathematics and physical science from age 11 to 16 years.

The problems were created to be authentic glimpses of...

Solar Images and Data

This resource contains three activities and accompanying teachers’ notes.

Picking out the details
Using images from the Hinode satellite and the Solar Dynamics Observatory, this activity requires students to use scale and unit conversions to learn more about the size and...
