Energy Transferred by Conduction
Energy and Thermal Physics

Home experiments and simulations to support the remote teaching and learning of energy and thermal physics

Remote teaching support for 11-14 14-16

A selection of home experiments and simulations that are suitable to use remotely with your students.

Health and Safety Guidance

These experiments have been selected by trained teachers as appropriate for use at home, but we have not specifically tested them for home use.

All experiments are carried out at your own risk.

To avoid risk of injury or damage, we recommend that you follow the instructions as shown, and that a responsible adult supervises all practical activity and considers the suitability of each task for their child.

Teachers proposing to recommend any resources to their students should:

  1. work within safety policies established by their school;
     
  2. use their professional judgement to assess the suitability of experiments for their own students;
     
  3. direct students and their parents/guardians to follow all stated instructions.

These experiments and online resources are suitable for students aged 11-14 and 14-16:
