Interactive activity based around what materials are used in car manufacture.
This is a site aimed mostly at school kids and is devoted to providing the best scientific information available to anyone who is interested in any aspect of biology (the study of life) including palaeontology (the study of the history of life).
Everything you see here is written by professional scientists who are experts in their own areas of interest. These people give up their free time to help you, so please use them to learn and enjoy science. They work on dinosaurs, sea scorpions, ecology, human evolution, spiders, cell biology, evolution, birds, human and animal behaviour, human medicine, physiology, forests, conservation, genetics, fish, and plenty more besides.
This link will take you to my writer profile, and a list of my articles on Suite 101, an on-line magazine.
Besides being an ambassador, I like to spread the word about the fun you can have with science by writing articles containing lesson plans, resources, and ideas for science activities to engage children with science.
There are articles on a range of topics, currently including:
Whole class projects linking to sustainability - Build a recycles bottle greenhouse
Suggested reading for children and teenagers - Cool Science Books
Physics - Balancing Butterflies, Light and Colour, Egg Box Monsters
Scientific Enquiry - Balloon Racing
Chemistry - Conduction, Convection and Radiation
Biology - Useful Ideas for Teaching Cell Structure
Articles are added on a regular basis, so please bookmark the page, and check back for updates!
Dr D's Science Days offers hands-on interactive activity days for Primary School pupils.
There are currently 3 different 'off the peg' activities, each of which introduces an area of science while encouraging development of scientific enquiry skills:
Wave Hello! - Investigate the properties of waves through light and music.
My Mate Bert - explore the human body by meeting Bert, the life sized skeleton, and playing lots of interactive games!
What's the Matter? - Take a close up look at the properties of matter using a digital microscope, and investigate the differences between solids, liquids and gases through drama.
Schools can also request a bespoke activity to fit with their current curriculum focus, or as part of a themed activity day / week.
Physics is about natural phenomena. A very broad description using vague terms. Fair enough but it actually encapsulates what Physics is all about: the natural world. By natural we mean anything and everything that can be experienced and measured by our senses or extensions of our senses. Essentially, things we can see, hear, smell, touch and taste and which we can quantify or measure is what constitute our natural world.
Any natural occurrences or phenomena of this world can be analysed and described by physics.
Electrolights is about explaining those day to day phenomena in simple terms and showing that physics, though mindboggling sometimes, is really about the basic things in life.
These are very useful links for parents, students and teachers who want to know more about the skills and qualifications needed to work in the Visual Effects industry and to find out more about the careers opportunities too.
