Zoom in on your genome

This video shows the various levels of DNA packaging and the four basic building blocks of DNA. it allows you to take a journey into the body to see where the genome is found and how DNA is packaged in the nucleus of the cell. The journey starts outside the body and takes you into the liver and a liver cell. You...

Astronauts Leaping on the Moon

This footage, from Footagevault, documents the locomotion of humans on the moon under reduced gravity conditions. It can be used with Key Stage Three and Four students to start discussions about forces. This clip shows Apollo 17 astronaut Gene Cernan leaping towards the camera with great big kangaroo hops.

What is engineering?

This resource provides an introduction to engineering for primary children. It can be used for a whole school assembly with follow-on inquiry work, or with one class, and would be suitable for working with a STEM Ambassador.  The resource aims to break down preconceptions about engineering, looks at what...

DIY Faraday Challenge: Smart Cycle

The IET DIY Faraday Challenge Day ‘Smart Cycle’ is a DIY STEM activity day but it could be adapted to be run as a suite of lessons. The aim of this challenge is to introduce students to cutting edge technology which engineers are, and will be using in the future and this challenge will work best if you have access...

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...

Investigating Sound

Produced by Teachers TV, this video illustrates how enthusiastic science co-ordinator Katrine Shears gives hints and tips about successful investigations using her experiments on sound as an example. Year Six children at Bobbing Village Primary School are conducting their own investigations to find the most...

The Final Frontier

In this Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) animation, the Robots visit some extreme environments to find out what research NERC scientists are doing there.

They travel through ice more than two miles thick to...

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...

Adaptations and Evolution

In this  activity, children observe and describe features of selected animals and plants and explain that these features may be evolutionary adaptations. They make observations of a living things and suggest reasons why the adaptations mean they are suited to...

Action!

From Teachers TV this video, part of the Science Tube series, examines forces in action, what they do and how they can be measured using a Newton meter.

There are four sections that each look at different forces.
