Weather in Space

This animation describes how Earth Observation satellites, such as METOP, allows us to forecast the weather and to measure changes in the climate and monitor natural disasters.  It also describes how the satellites are monitored by engineers on the ground to ensure they are functioning correctly.

Waves, Seismic Imaging, and Tectonics

This film clip looks at how different waves behave depending on the nature of the material they are passing through. It shows how seismic survey teams make use of these differences in velocity, absorption, refraction and reflection to find out about underlying rock structures. The clip also explores how new...

Forces and Motion: The Physics of Car Crashes *suitable for home teaching*

This film clip uses slow motion footage filmed during car crash testing to explore how energy is distributed during the fractions of a second when cars crash. The clip explores ideas of inertia, resultant forces, energy and momentum, but applies it in the real world context of designing air bags, crumple zones...

Extraordinary Electromagnetism

Nearly two hundred years after Faraday wowed his audiences by demonstrating electromagnetic induction, this clip takes a variety of exciting and contemporary examples through which to explain the principles behind the phenomenon that has made it possible to produce and distribute electrical energy on a large scale...

Electricity, Transmission, and Distribution

This clip looks at how electricity is distributed from power station to consumers along the National Grid. As well as giving an overview of the entire distribution network, it also looks at how step up and step down transformers are used to reduce line loss during transmission and to make the voltage safe for use...

Electricity Generation: Non Renewables

Fossil Fuels and nuclear energy still account for over 60% of the UK's electricity generation and in some countries their use is even on the rise. As well as containing clear explanations and graphics to illustrate how energy from coal, gas and uranium is used to generate electricity, this clip explores the...

Electricity Generation: Renewables

This film clip shows how steam is used to drive turbines in power stations which burn fossil fuels. It then looks at how turbines can be adapted to be driven by alternative energy sources, and examines the advantages and disadvantages of energy sources such as wind, to solar, biomass, hydroelectric power, tidal and...

Faraday Challenges

Faraday Challenges are designed to promote team work, curiosity and raise the profile of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects, so are particularly relevant as part of an enrichment and enhancement programme built into your curriculum.

Crest Awards

If you teach or work with students between the age of 11 and 19 and you want to inspire and motivate them to get involved in real science, then Crest Awards may be the vehicle to deliver this.

This guide, from triple science support, has been produced for teachers who are looking for activities with...

Careers

This guide, from triple science support, has been produced to provide advice and guidance for teachers wishing to incorporate careers activities into the scheme of work. The guide offers background information and practical suggestions to support classroom practice. Before you start to plan your activity, it is...

Astrobiology

The search for life on other worlds is one of the most fascinating contexts that science lessons can have. In this guide, several of the resources focus on practical experiments or investigations that link astrobiology to the science curriculum. In all cases, regular scientific concepts such as factors affecting...

STEM Ambassadors

This guide, from triple science support, offers background information and practical suggestions to support classroom practice when working with STEM Ambassadors and gives suggestions for securing progression, follow up activities and measuring impact. Integrating STEM Ambassadors within schemes of learning can be...

Radiation and Medicine

This guide, from triple science support, provides practical advice and guidance to enhance and enrich the teaching of the electromagnetic spectrum using the context of medical physics. Most students are engaged by the ideas that medicine brings to the curriculum so this guide can be used as a tool to raise...

Genomics: Using a Researcher in the Classroom

This guide, from triple science support, has been produced to provide advice and guidance for teachers wishing to engage with a researcher from a local university and to support the teaching of genomics with enhancement and enrichment opportunities. The guide offers background information and practical suggestions...

Fieldwork
