This lesson for students aged 5-7 is about lights. What if we can find new uses for visible light, beyond simply as a means to see in the dark? Can we explore the greater range of uses if light bulbs could be lighter, smaller, coloured and long lasting?
This lesson for students aged 10-11 is about communication. It takes inspiration from the inventor of the telephone Alexander Graham Bell. Looking at telephones and touchscreens.
See how the structures of organs and cells are directly related to their specialist functions.
Explore the structure of DNA and how it is organised into chromosomes.
This lesson for students aged 8-11 is about motors and robots. Most children make the link between the basic tool and electricity making the tool better but this lesson seeks to introduce the new term and awareness of the electric motor. Children are then encouraged to consider the process of invention and take a simple device and improve it with a motor.
This lesson for students aged 7-11 is about what it's like to live in space, and what needs to be done to keep people alive in space.
This lesson for students aged 7-11 is about a rocket launch and the team that it takes to send a rocket to space.
This lesson for students aged 7-11 is about life on extremely long space journeys, and how to provide enough food and water to keep astronauts going.
Review the copying mechanism of DNA and consider the result of mistakes during DNA replication on the organism and at evolutionary levels.
Discover how DNA contains the instructions for life.
Explore the two types of cell division, mitosis and meiosis, and the differences between them.
Learn about genetic inheritance and the findings of Mendel.
Review Darwin’s theory of Evolution by Natural Selection, and see it illustrated with a selection game in the famous lecture theatre.
Delve into the world of structural biology and take a look at protein structure and function.
