Can't Stand Up?

Produced by the Maths Magic project, Can’t Stand Up? provides teacher inspiration for introducing the topic of forces in an A-level mathematics or physics lesson. The plan describes two simple experiments asking a student to stand against a wall and then attempt to perform seemingly simple tasks. The tasks are...

Bubble Fun

This activity contains the Science Museum’s secret bubble recipe and ideas about how to create brilliant bubble-blowers. There’s also a lot to find out about the science of mixtures and materials and the properties of water.

Learning outcomes:

  • Investigate how mixing water changes the way it...

Bronze Award: Squeaky Clean

These materials look at three possible projects that relate to household cleaning products:
