Why does water freeze? How do you melt glass? How do hot air balloons float? Catch Kellyn, resident scientist Clare and the crew as they cross (not live) to Monsieur Montgolfier and set some facts straight about states of matter.
You're invited to an all animals, all the time party. Also on the guest list - elephants, turtles, iguanas and tarantulas.
A new way of showing how maths is used in the real world to help create a sustainable future. Stefan Gates meets people using maths to find innovative solutions to the ecological challenges of our age.
In this episode targeted at the Primary maths curriculum, Stefan visits a unique grocery in Manchester and learns how to reduce food waste by turning facts and figures into fractions and percentages.
In this episode targeted at the Primary maths curriculum Stefan explores alternatives to car use by pedalling a rickshaw across Bristol and constructs simple equations to calculate the carbon cost of a new cycle way.
In this episode, Stefan visits a brand new hospital in London where he learns about measuring and controlling temperature and visits a school that uses data collection to run an energy saving campaign.
In this episode, Stefan visits a vast recycling plant to explore how 2D and 3D shapes are used to sort and reuse rubbish, and visits a school that uses recycled objects in many different ways.
The kids tackle experiments in filming a home-made horror movie; mixing up lipstick in the kitchen; horror-themed photography; using inertia in a magic trick; how the shape of an aerofoil's wings create lift and lots more.
The kids explore experiments in trick photography that requires a balancing act; the components of everyday sand; an optical illusion based on convex and concave imagery and lots more.
The kids test out experiments in using pulley systems to redistribute weight; how boomerangs alter wind resistance in order to return; chemical reactions that create pressure-based propulsion and lots more.
The kids take on experiments in turning hydrophilic sand hydrophobic; transferring sound through vibration across surfaces; how vibrations are manipulated to create different sounds in musical instruments and lots more.
The kids undertake experiments in coin tricks that play with physics; a classic card trick that relies on memory; how spreading the force of impact over time can reduce breakage and lots more.
The kids tackle experiments in the role of osmosis in the process of pickling food, play with foregrounds to use forced perspective in photo illusions, the classic Erdnase 'change' card trick, and lots more.
The kids explore experiments in how sense and sensory deprivation affect the human body, create musical instruments by manipulating air vibrations, see how ballast is used to keep ships upright, and much more.
The kids master experiments in forced perspective in trick photography; learning about acids in food, pH testing and what happens when acids and alkalis interact and much more.
The kids take on experiments in the well-known Cafe Wall Illusion, how sundials and pendulums were used to tell time in the past, creating a disco ball out of a dodecahedron and much more.
The kids test out experiments in the basics of forensic evidence collection; playing with gallium, a metal with a low melting point; how refraction in water can create a magnifying effect and much more.
The kids tackle experiments in using air pressure to create propulsion in rockets, tricky ways to fold paper into mind-bending shapes, creating a moving robot based on uneven weight transference on an axle and much more.
What is a structure and how do you make it sturdy? Hamza wants a new bookcase. He enlists help to build it and learns that there are three forms that make the basis of all structures: frames, shells, and solids.
The kids explore experiments in how visual information and processing order affects how our brain interprets images, finding iron in food using a magnet, how air temperature affects the movement of air currents and much more.
