Tim Peake

This video is a message to ESERO-UK from European Space Agency astronaut Tim Peake. He talks about studying STEM subjects and how he became an astronaut. The video includes images of a launch, Tim engaging in various astronaut training exercises and the International Space Station, where Tim will be for six months...

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC)

From the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), the 'Big questions, big experiment' wall chart describes the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. It looks at the "big questions" about our Universe that scientists are trying to answer, and how the amazing LHC will help them to do so. The 'Tunnel to the...

Big Telescopes

The Big Telescopes poster links ground and space based telescopes with the parts of the electromagnetic spectrum that they are observing and their locations on Earth or in space.

The poster explains how larger telescopes allow scientists to learn more about the early universe and map our own galaxy with...

Energy Analyst

Rebecca Beresford is an energy analyst at EDF Energy. This clip could be useful when teaching about sustainable development, enery efficiency or climate change. It also illustrates a career that requires an understanding of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Rebecca describes her role, "...

Beat the Flood STEM challenge

In this resource, suitable for Key Stage Two to Three (age 7-14), students use their STEM skills to help them design and build a model of a flood- proof house. Activities to help them with their design include testing materials (for strength and absorbency) and structures. Set on a fictitious island coping with the...

Passive Solar Design: Zero-energy Housing

This resource challenges students to design and build a one‐bedroom model house within the design constraints, utilising passive solar heating techniques to warm up the house as much as possible and sustain that temperature for as long as possible. After the design and build process, students test their house and...

Electrical Installation

Produced for Future Morph, these resources contain a video in which a student talks about her apprenticeship course in electrical installation at Exeter college. She describes the entry qualifications needed for her course, contrasts her experiences at college compared to school and briefly...

Wheelchair Technology

Sports engineers from Sheffield Hallam University and Frazer Nash are helping Team GB's wheelchair paralympians fine-tune their equipment and training regimes using advanced analysis technology. Engineers explain the relationship between science and engineering in disability sports and how inspiring it is to work...

How Nuclear Fusion Works

This film, from the Institute of Mechanical Engineers, explains the process of nuclear fusion. Culham Centre for Fusion Energy is one of the world's leading fusion research laboratories, where scientists and engineers are working with partners around the globe to develop fusion as a new source of clean energy for...

Physics in Sport: Fencing

This resource uses the context of fencing to make a simple electric circuit. Students make an epee sword out of a smarties tube and incorporate a buzzer that should sound when the button on the end of the smarties tube is pressed. Students are encouraged investigate how they could change the volume of the buzzer or...
