This is a simple demonstration which is guaranteed to capture the pupils' interest at the start of the topic on magnetism.
To introduce the idea of finding the magnetic north pole from anywhere on the Earth.
This activity provides a memorable demonstration of motion in a circle and demonstrates the need for an inward centripetal...
To explore the range and variety of the uses of satellites.
Here you compare the distance the satellite is carried sideways away from the Earth by its own motion and the distance that it...
Here you look at the performance of a satellite camera.
Some satellites send out pulses, and then time how long these pulses take to return, in order to see what lies beneath them...
This is a class activity, making a physical model of the GPS that uses three measurements to plots positions.
The purpose of this activity is to get pupils thinking and talking about forces.
This activity allows pupils to investigate some more complex real life situations and to consider the forces acting, by...
The purpose of this activity is to get pupils thinking and talking about forces. The question focuses on thinking about the...
This is a variation on the extending a spring experiment. Here the measurements are of compression and the support sheet...
