Experiments in Science: Time Lapse Video

Richard Needham, from the National STEM Learning Centre and Network, demonstrates how to use time lapse video to speed up action that would otherwise be either too slow to notice within a normal school science lesson, or to provide opportunities to explore gradual changes outside a classroom.

Primary Science Activities for Winter

In this National STEM Learning Centre and Network video, Zoe Crompton shows two activities that primary teachers can use in the winter. Each one involves using snow or ice. The first activity is inspired by the question "Why do we put salt on the roads?" It demonstrates a fair test to compare the effectiveness of...

Electron Diffraction Tube

In this video, produced by the National STEM Learning Centre and Network and the Institute of Physics, Alom Shaha explains the elements of an electron diffraction tube and how to use one to demonstrate a diffraction pattern. The video is aimed at teachers but it could also be used with older students to...

Acids

These downloadable videos and animations are part of the multimedia package Stuff and Substance, developed by the Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme (SEP). They can be used to develop ideas relating to the characteristic reactions of acids.

These resources can be used to unpack the complexities surrounding...

Case Study: Plumbing

Produced for Future Morph, this resource contains a video in which an apprentice plumber talks about his work in a renewable energy company installing solar water panels. The theory and practicals he learns in college is applied in the workplace.

A second activity looks at a demonstration that illustrates...

Case Study: Service Engineering

Produced for Future Morph, this video sees an apprentice in service engineering talk about his work. Service engineers are mechanical engineers who work on equipment such as engines and gearboxes. The student describes how his attendance at college fits with his job in an engineering business and allows him to...

Melting Behaviour

These downloadable videos and animations are part of the multimedia package Stuff and Substance, developed by the Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme (SEP). They can be used to develop the idea that mixtures do not have precise melting and boiling points. Using properties that depend on the material only to...

Evaporation of Water

These downloadable videos and animations are part of the multimedia package Stuff and Substance, developed by the Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme (SEP). They can be used to distinguish between boiling and evaporation of water below boiling point.

Boiling forms a pure sample of water in the gas state (...

Condensation of Water

This downloadable video is part of the multimedia package Stuff and Substance, developed by the Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme (SEP). It can be used to show water condensing out of the air. A pure sample of water is normally in the liquid state at room temperature, but water particles can remain separated...

Recognising Dissolving

These downloadable videos and animations are part of the multimedia package Stuff and Substance, developed by the Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme (SEP). They can be used to introduce and explain the phenomenon of dissolving.

Dissolving is recognised by the formation of a clear mixture. Before mixing,...
