Your Science Out There

 

Scientific knowledge is a pyramid.

Scientists working at the frontier of research - generating new knowledge and expanding humanity’s horizons - draw upon concepts, language and skills that they've learnt from the very beginning of their education. Through videos and teaching resources, ‘Your Science Out There’ aims to take scientific learners of all ages outside the classroom, lecture room or textbook, and give tangible examples of how syllabus science is being used right now to increase our understanding of the wider wonders of our universe. We journey from...

...lakes on ancient Mars...

...to water molecules that fell on dinosaurs...

...to the science of volcanic eruptions.

                  It’s amazing where your science can take you!
