Mission: Starlight

This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry,  is about protecting astronauts from the effects of harmful UV light.

 

Students can experiment with different materials to discover which blocks UV light the best and can...

Is There Anyone Out There?

This resource was funded by the UK Space Agency and developed by ESERO-UK and CIEC Promoting Science. It is based upon the quest to discover more about the solar system through space projects such as the European Space Agency’s Aurora programme, and NASA’s Curiosity mission seeking to gather evidence of life on the...

Alka-Seltzer Rocket

Produced by the Institute of Physics, this Physics to Go video shows a demonstration of how the idea of pressure can be shown using just a 35mm film canister, some water and an effervescent tablet. When water is added to the effervescent tablet, bubbles of carbon dioxide gas are given off. When the lid is fitted...

The Monte Rosa Mountain Hut (11-14)

These activities from Siemens allow students to apply concepts of energy transfer and conservation to building design by challenging them to design a mountain hut. The challenge is introduced using the video, which emphasises the wild and potentially inhospitable nature of the environment that people need shelter...

The Complete Illusioneering Magic Book

This book provides a range of easy-to-do magic tricks based on Chemistry, Physics, Engineering and Mathematics.

The video features Richard Garriott on Science and Magic and shows how the properties of ferofluid can exploited to create a magic trick.

 

Thermal Conductivity

These two short videos, produced by the National STEM Learning Centre, illustrate the process of thermal conductivity. The first video shows a demonstration of thermal conductivity using ice, plastic and aluminium blocks. Alom Shaha explains the process involved. The second video simply shows the effect of the...

Monkey and Hunter

From the National STEM Learning Centre, this short video illustrates the effect of gravity on a projectile's motion by using a classic physics demonstration called the Monkey and the Hunter. If a hunter fires horizontally at a monkey in a tree, and simultaneously the monkey releases their grip to fall off the...

Electric Sausage

In this video, produced by the National STEM Learning Centre and Network and the Institute of Physics, Michael de Podesta has a unique twist to demonstrate static electricity and charge. Small pieces of paper are attracted to a statically-charged balloon. Amazingly, so is a sausage. This short video illustrates an...

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.

Power Lines

Produced by the National STEM Learning Centre and the Institute of Physics, this video is aimed at teachers. Alom Shaha shows a demonstration that can be used to illustrate power transmission and why high voltages are used to minimise power loss.
