Do you think left-handed people have characteristics that are different from right-handed people? It seems that right-pawed dogs have certain characteristics that make them better Guide Dogs, but how do you find out whether your dog is right-pawed or left-pawed to begin with? Watch this experiment to find out!
Explore how forces and energy are continually shaping and changing the Earth's surface. Find out about fast and slow changes and the connection between them first observed by English scientist Charles Lyell. Discover the Earth's age, how rocks form, what they contain, and what they reveal about the Earth's long history.
In this investigation, different forms of energy and how they can be transformed from one form to another are investigated through examining the transformations involved in hydroelectricity. Students explore common ‘energy transformation’ devices and recognise that not all energy transformations are useful.
When you walk with a glass or a cup filled with liquid, do you find yourself spilling some of the liquid? Some scientists have studied why this happens and how best to avoid it.
We'd like to think our dogs offer us comfort when we get upset or injured. Can the 'classic test' of empathy in humans tell us something about dogs? The reporter investigates the phenomenon of empathy: the ability to be aware and sensitive to the feelings of others from their perspective.
This online resource is a Connected Learning Experience (CLE) explore the rock cycle.In this investigation, students explore the processes in the rock cycle that result in new rocks being formed.
Through hands-on investigation, they learn about the formation and properties of the different types of rocks.
Take a look at cells, and some of their components, starting from the very beginning of life on Earth. Speculate on the origin of the molecules of life and investigate how they combine to create the structure and function of cells.
Have you ever wondered what causes that annoying 'red-eye' in photos taken with a flash? How can you avoid or lessen it? Marko Moutafis uses eye models as he takes us through a lively demonstration to help answer these questions. He entered this video into the 2013 Sleek Geeks Eureka Science School Prize competition.
This resource is in the style of an 'authentic' scientific investigation. The investigation is set in a crime lab where finding the densities of the various items can solve the crime. The tool enables students to explore mass and volume for a variety of solids and liquids and hence determine their densities.
This resource contains information about how to calculate the amount of sugar and number of kilojoules in soft drink and fruit juices and brief explanation for students the effect of consuming too much sugar.
