BBC - Schools - Bitesize

BBC - Schools - Bitesize | Science Tools for School | Scoop.it

BBC Bitesize is the name given to the BBC's free online study support resource for school-age students in the United Kingdom.  It is well packed with interactive resources on a comprehensive array of topics for all year levels.

In addition to Science resources, there are also resources for English and Maths!

FYI, as an approximate guideline, Key Stage 1 would be year 1-2, KS2 = year 3-6, KS3 = year 7-9, KS4 = year 10-11, and KS5 = year 12.

Share with Science teachers. It's got a CC BY SA licence! I haven't checked ALL the links but can scan these codes from my computer screen using my phone and QuickMark QR Reader software. Of course you could always go the 'old school' way & print it to stick on the wall!

Best Physics Apps - Tiki Towers

Best Physics Apps - Tiki Towers | Science Tools for School | Scoop.it

Tiki Towers is a builder puzzle game that has you constructing a means for the monkeys to get over to the end point using a limited number of bamboo sticks. The gameplay is oriented toward engineering, particularly on the construction and the stability of trusses. It is one of the best gameplay in terms of actual physics because its application can easily be seen in the real world. As you construct bridges, towers, and the like for the monkeys to climb and swing on, an additional objective would be to get bananas scattered throughout the level. There are a few more of these builder physics games in the App Store with similar gameplay, but like Angry Birds, Tiki Towers brings a ton of personality that plays a huge factor in its likability.

Best Physics Apps - Cut the Rope

Best Physics Apps - Cut the Rope | Science Tools for School | Scoop.it

Cut the Rope is a cute puzzle physics game which for the most part requires you to utilize centripetal force and tension (in simplistic scenarios, of course) in order to bring the candy to that little critter inside the box. The gameplay is unique as it stays away from traditional projectile or building blocks gameplay often used in most physics puzzle games.

Genetic engineering to enable a cat to express green flourescent protein... My first reaction is to ask - why? However, further reading sheds light on this initially absurd example of genetic modification...

Thanks for including my blog in your Scoop.it curation. My Year 8 students found this to be an enjoyable project because they learnt how to create QR codes and also about how different body organs work together.

Best Physics Apps - Enigmo 2

Best Physics Apps - Enigmo 2 | Science Tools for School | Scoop.it

Enigmo 2 is the 3D sequel to one of the first and best physics puzzle games in the App Store. Enigmo 2 is not just a 3D upgrade in terms of graphics, but also of its gameplay. Even the levels are created in a 3D environment which means that each puzzle may involve all 3 axes. This may be good or bad depending on how much of a hardcore puzzle gamer you are as a big majority of the levels would really require you to think 3D in order to complete the level. The gameplay is very simple, but the difficulty can get to hair-pulling levels.

Best Physics Apps - Stair Dismount

Best Physics Apps - Stair Dismount | Science Tools for School | Scoop.it

Stair Dismount is one of those “injury” games, which are quite unique in the App Store, wherein you are tasked to achieve the highest score possible based on how much damage you are able to inflict on your character. Don’t worry; your character is simply a rag doll or a crash-test dummy. The gameplay of Stair Dismount is to find the exact location where to push your character and the amount of force you need to generate maximum damage as your character falls down a set of stairs or from a high structure. Your character follows rag doll physics, and you have to perfectly utilize this in order to inflict the most damage. Most of the gameplay obviously is simple trial and error as rag doll physics offers almost limitless possibilities. The best part is really watching your rag doll bump, twist, and somersault, and hearing those bone-crunching sounds.
