KS5 - Conflict Case Study

In this activity, students explore a group of islands in the Southern Atlantic Ocean (South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands), which are a habitat to major populations of seabirds and marine mammals but are particularly sensitive to fishing, climate change and other human disturbances. They evaluate conflicting evidence to decide if policy makers should extend the Marine Protected Area (MPA) around the islands.

KS5 (UK) ages 17-18 - Isotopes

In this lesson, students will take an in-depth dive into the techniques used by researchers to make new discoveries and learn about how isotopes can tell us about the history of our planet’s climate.

KS5 (UK) ages 17-18 - Equilibrium on Mars

In this activity students carry out an investigation using Le Châtelier’s principle before applying this to explaining how changes in atmospheric conditions on early Mars would have affected the equilibrium of reactions happening in the lakes on its surface.

KS5 - Conservation of the Scottish Wildcat

In this activity students develop a persuasive presentation as a conservation action plan for the Scottish wildcat.

KS5 - Genetic Archaeology

This activity engages students with interesting real-life scenarios where genetic testing has been vital to developing our historical understanding.

KS5 - Immune Cell Top Trumps

This top trumps activity is intended to be a fun and interactive way for students to engage with and review the content of immune cells and their function.

KS5 - Transport Across Membranes

This activity develops scientific comprehension by engaging students with a piece of significant current research within an interesting context. Students read an adapted article, pitched at an appropriate level for interpretation by A-level students.

KS5 - Resistivity and error in measurement

Learning Outcomes: 1. Define resistivity and determine the equation of resistivity. 2. Identify systematic and random errors. 3. Assess the uncertainty of measurements.

KS5 - What is a Semiconductor?

Learning Outcomes: 1. Recognise I-V graphs and the limitations of Ohm’s Law. 2. Describe the difference between an Ohmic conductor and a semiconductor. 3. Identify and analyse uses and limitations of semiconductors.

KS5 - Changing a population

Learning Outcomes 1. Describe what determines a population size 2. Graph a changing population and calculate the rate of change 3. Compare and contrast intraspecific competition and interspecific competition
