Tim Peake public presentation

This presentation was produced by the UK Space Agency for Tim Peake's mission to the International Space Station in 2015/16.

Printing in Three Dimensions

This Catalyst article looks at 3D printing, a new technology which is rapidly finding applications. Although probably too slow for mass production it is useful for producing prototypes and tailor-made items. In a 3D printer, layers of polymer beads are printed one on top of the other. Heat melts the polymer beads...

Freaky Hand

This video from the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), aimed at primary teachers, demonstrates an experiment which may be used when learning about irreversible reactions. Vinegar is poured into a jar and a plastic glove containing bicarbonate of soda is fitted...

Evaporation

These diagnostic questions and response activities (contained in the zip file) support students in being able to:

  • Recognise that evaporation occurs in different liquids, not just water.
  • Predict that evaporation will occur in liquids with a temperature that is less than or greater than that of...

Exothermic and endothermic reactions

 

These diagnostic questions and response activities (contained in the zip file) support students in being able to:

  • Recognise that energy is conserved during an exothermic reaction.
  • Describe how the temperature of the chemicals will change with time after an exothermic reaction.
  • ...

TEP Publications

These publications have been produced as part of the Technology Enhancement Programme (TEP). TEP materials do not prescribe what should be taught, or how. TEP has absolute confidence in the professional judgement of teachers to selectively copy or edit the materials as they believe appropriate. These resources are...

Intriguing Ice

This video demonstrates an experiment which may be used when learning about changing state. Different kinds of liquid are frozen and the results observed and discussed. Pre-boiled water results in a mostly clear ice, salt water a cloudy ice, lemonade an ice...
