Make a Game Project

In this multi-lesson project pupils design and code a computer game. It uses a rainforest theme but can be adapted to any topic, with learners of varying age or ability.

The project includes:

  • Decomposition of the elements of a game
  • Designing the game
  • Creating assets for the...

Hungry Mice

From the Science Museum, this interactive game encourages students to think about renewable and non-renewable energy sources. Students need to guide their 'Hungry mice' as they find and eat energy sources. Renewable ones are replaced but non-renewable resources disappear. The game is a way to engage younger...

DNA Sequencing

From the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, this animation shows a detailed overview of the processes involved in the dideoxy or Sanger method for sequencing DNA. This is the method used to sequence the human genome. The animation demonstrates the principles and techniques involved in the Sanger sequencing method,...

Published by the Wellcome Trust, the ‘Big Picture’ explores issues around biology and medicine.​

This resource includes...

Wellcome Trust: Tree of life *suitable for home teaching*

Produced by the Wellcome Trust, these resources include an interactive evolutionary tree and a video of the Tree of Life. These materials will help students to find out more about the work of Charles Darwin and evolution. The resources contain:

Tree of life video: The video is a short...

Balancing Chemical Equations

With this simulation students can explore the conservation of mass and balance chemical equations. Sample learning objectives include: *Balance a chemical equation. *Recognize that the number of atoms of each element is conserved in a chemical reaction. Describe the difference between coefficients and subscripts in...

Friction

This simulation can be used to demonstrate how friction causes a material to heat up and melt. It shows how when two objects are rubbed together they heat up. When one reaches the melting temperature, particles break free as the material melts away. Sample learning objectives include: *Describe a model for friction...

Biodiversity *suitable for home teaching*

Sovon, a Dutch bird protection organisation, counts birds. The number of greylag geese is increasing. Students are asked to investigate whether this increase is worrying for the diversity of water bird species? Students explore what the concept biodiversity means, how it can be described mathematically and what are...

Human Body

This resource, aimed at primary learners, contains three lessons on skeleton and muscles, digestion and circulation. An interactive simulation, 'Inside the Human Body', explores each of the systems demonstrating their structure and function. It also provides interactive games which support the activities.
