Fission and Fusion: a Physics Kit

This resource, produced by SEPNet and Queen Mary University of London, uses Lego to represent the building blocks of matter. Different colour and size Lego bricks are assigned to protons, neutrons and electrons. Fusion is shown by joining bricks together and fission by breaking large collections of bricks apart....

Farms, Sensors and Satellites

This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry ‘Challenging Plants’ resource pack, is a teacher presentation which provides background information on the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS), a European Space Agency (ESA) project.

It explores the use of sensors and satellites in...

Exploring Rainforests

In this activity, students examine changes to forests in cross-border regions of Africa and Borneo using Google Earth Pro to help identify features shown in satellite images and make measurements. The context allows students to explore the factors which put pressure on forested areas, and what is being done to...

Explore Your Universe: Atoms to Astrophysics Handbook and School Activities

Explore Your Universe is a partnership between the UK Association for Science and Discovery Centres (ASDC) and the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC). The vision for the project is to inspire a new sense of excitement amongst young people and their families through telling the amazing stories and...

Exoplanet atmospheres

In this activity developed by the Institute of Physics, students use simple diffraction gratings to observe the spectra from different sources, and deduce how scientists can work out which chemicals are present in an exoplanet’s atmosphere. When an exoplanet passes in front of its star, some of the starlight is...

Earth and the Solar System

This resource from Physicists in Primary Schools (PIPS) supports the teaching of Earth and Space at Key Stage Two. A presentation introduces Earth and the planets of our solar system, with an activity in which children help demonstrate the relative sizes of planets and the distances between them. It moves on to...

Day and Night, Seasons

In this activity developed by the Institute of Physics, students model the motion of a planet around a star and investigate how day and night and seasons may be different on other planets. Working in pairs or small groups, students demonstrate night and day and seasons to each other. They can then go on to model...

Orthographic Projection

Here are some resources that I have used to support the teaching of orthographic projection in D&T.

Primary Computing Lesson celebrating Ada Lovelace

Teach primary computing with history. This teacher-led activity adapted for the Hour of Code involves conducting online research about Ada Lovelace a female pioneer in STEM and the world’s first computer programmer!

Children present their findings using basic HTML and CSS to create a multimedia webpage all...
