Science teachers will have free access to a comprehensive selection of exciting multimedia resources to help them teach and inspire pupils studying science at Key Stage 3 with a new interactive CD-rom. The material has been selected and edited in a project involving top UK scientists, teachers and education consultants.
Seeingscience with CCLRC has been produced by CCLRC, a UK government-funded research council which operates the Daresbury and Rutherford Appleton Laboratories. It provides lessons to support the KS3 initiative on scientific enquiry with plans for practical investigations using ideas and evidence. The CD-rom contains full differentiated lesson plans coupled with images, animations, videos and games in six sections: life; space; materials; food; environment; and light.
Tony Buckley, head of CCLRC’s science and society programme, said, “This CD-rom will make it easy for teachers to bring science to life for pupils with cutting-edge science and meet all the requirements of the national curriculum. It contains exciting interactive materials including stunning images, educational animations, an amusing audio recording and compulsive games. It will challenge pupils to explore the solar system, plan a mission to Pluto, solve the outbreak of a disease and investigate just what makes chocolate taste so good.”

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure
Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...

The field of quantum computation has seen tremendous progress in recent years. Bit by bit, quantum devices start to challenge conventional computers, at least...
Scientists developed specially coated nanometer-sized vehicles that can be actively moved through dense tissue like the vitreous of the eye. So far, the transport of nano-vehicles has only been demonstrated in model systems or biological fluids, but not in real tissue. The work was published in the journal Science Advances and constitutes one step further towards nanorobots becoming minimally-invasive tools for precisely delivering medicine to where it is needed.
Researchers of the “Micro, Nano and Molecular Systems” Lab at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart, together with an international...
