    We’ve produced a video and handout targeted at teenagers. It’s just 90 seconds long, but we have captured some of the most essential information that teenagers need to know about eating well to keep their brains healthy. We’ve also produced a handout to accompany it that includes some additional detail.
    All of this can be found at
    We think this is absolutely critical information for young people, and hope that you agree.
    If you find it interesting, we’d like you to share it with students and colleagues.
    And if you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch.

    I have just been looking at some alternative ways of linking science in the classroom to science in the workplace. Ive heard lots of good things about this company who are staffed by ex police detectives and CSI’s – apparently they provide a real hands on day and the kids get really engaged.

    Hello everybody, I am a final year product design student at the University of Huddersfield. I am trying to gather research about practical equipment, used in both primary and secondary schools. If you would be kind enough to spare a few minutes of your time to fill out my short questionnaire, you would be providing me with some invaluable research. Thank you very much for your time!

    Hi. Does anyone have a copy of the old NC Levels for KS1 and 2 with sub-level descriptors? I am conducting some research on assessment. Thank you. Steve

    Great resources! I tried the Reactions of Acids challenge practical with my class and made a few amendments to the sheet.
    On then final column in the table of results students are required to write whether sodium carbonate, etc. are a metal oxide, metal carbonate or a metal. Students could do that without carrying out the practical so I removed that column.
    Also on the first table to be filled in before carrying out the investigation I added a column where students need to write what they should observe when each substance reacts with an acid.
