Lighting Designer *suitable for home teaching*

Will Wagner is a lighting software designer. This Department for Education clip illustrates the major role that science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects play in the creative industries. Will designs the lighting for concerts, plays, films, pop videos and other entertainment events. He...

Straw Oboes *suitable for home teaching*

Produced by the Institute of Physics, this Physics to Go video shows a noisy, amusing demonstration of the physics of music. Using a drinking straw, it is possible to make a vibrating 'reed' similar to ones found in wind instruments. It can take a bit of practice to get exactly right, but it is well worth the...

Energy Analyst *suitable for home teaching*

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, "...

Plankton and Global Warming *suitable for home teaching*

This Cape Farewell video clip features a discussion about the three important carbon cycles at work in the oceans and their place in global warming.

In Activity I - Carbon cycle, students use the video to build up diagrams of the three carbon cycles. Teachers can use the carbon cycle sequence images to...

Fire extinguishers and combustion *suitable for home teaching*

In this predict-observe-explain activity, students explore different ways of extinguishing a flame with some surprising results. The lesson is introduced with the video of engineer Yusuf Muhammad. Yusuf is developing a revolutionary new household fire-safety device, incorporating the techniques of professional...

Evolutionary History of Life

This resource links to evolution and inheritance, providing a video of a news report on the history of life on Earth. A newsreader highlights the progression of some species from ‘simple’ life such as single celled organisms progressing to more complex organisms at different stages in evolutionary history,...

Primary: Body Defences (Immunity)

Produced by the Health Protection Agency, this e-Bug resource helps students to look at the different ways the body defends itself against harmful infections. Extensive teacher guidance and stimulus materials help to cover topics including: * How the skin forms a barrier that prevents microbes entering the body *...

Electric Motor

Produced by the National STEM Centre and the Institute of Physics, this video shows a simple method for making an electric motor using a battery, strong magnets and a copper coil. It allows students to investigate Fleming's left hand rule and the forces generated in an electric motor.

Chemistry Captured: Video Materials for Teachers of Chemistry

This DVD of video clips was produced by the Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme in partnership with the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) and the School of Chemistry, Cardiff University. It offers students the opportunity to view a range of reactions at close range with the ability of pausing and replaying key...

Whoosh bottle (teach with space)

In this activity, alcohol and air are mixed in a large plastic water bottle before being ignited, to simulate the physics principles of chemical rocket engines. The students will observe a rapid reaction accompanied by a dramatic “whoosh” sound and flames. They will discuss the...
