Inspiring interest in radio communications

Inspiring interest in radio communications

SDRplay provide a “software defined radio” (SDR) which turns a Raspberry Pi or PC into a full communications receiver capable of picking up radio signals across the spectrum from long waves to microwaves. All you need is the SDR and a simple antenna which is often just a length of wire. This simple tutorial can help a class pick up signals for themselves: https://youtu.be/JvP8t8aPmRw and this inspiring video shows how a class can pick up actual pictures from the International Space Station (first the class can practice on other signals and when they are ready, they can time their listening for when the ISS is transmitting pictures and passing overhead. See: https://youtu.be/vRwH0FlH9MA Potentially SDRplay can lend a school an RSP1A, or they can be bought with educational discount by emailing jon.hudson@sdrplay.com (SDRplay co-founder)

AQA Combined Science Trilogy: 6.6 Waves Quiz

AQA Combined Science Trilogy: 6.6 Waves Quiz

Want to quickly and easily review a chapter of the AQA Combined Science Trilogy specification? Want to be able to lead pupils to a targeted revision list to enable them to close their gaps? This revision resource consists of a range of questions across the specific specification points. There are a minimum of two questions per spec code. The specification document has been closely used to guarantee the correct use of terminology and phrasing. This leads to pupils then self-marking after each sub topic. This will consist of them marking and noting the identified spec code in a WWW or EBI list. Once the quiz is completed they will then follow the instructions to create their own personalised review of the full quiz and self-generate their personalised revision list by specification name using the supplied list. This activity is 1-2 lessons depending on the depth of revision time you allow the pupils though these tasks can be class or homework. Lesson plan included.

Christmas Science

Christmas Science

A selection of Christmas themed Science lessons, including designing and testing hand warmers for Santa and turning pennies into gold. Most of these resources are my own, some ideas and resources have been borrowed from others. However, I have pooled resources to make a bank of Christmas themed science lessons, so science can be taught right up until the end of term.

Electromagnetic Waves

Electromagnetic Waves

A fully-resourced lesson that looks at the 7 electromagnetic waves, their differences, similarities and uses. The lesson includes an engaging presentation (54 slides) and associated worksheets. The lesson begins with a number of engaging activities to get the students to find out the names of the 7 waves in the spectrum. Students will be challenged to use their knowledge of the properties of waves to explain why they have been arranged in this particular order. Moving forwards, some time is taken to ensure that students recognise the similarities of the waves. The rest of the lesson focuses on the uses of the waves and a homework is also set to get students to increase the number of uses that they know for each wave. There are regular progress checks throughout the lesson so that students can assess their understanding at critical points. This lesson has primarily been designed for GCSE students (14 - 16 year olds in the UK) but could be used with students at KS3 who are doing a project

Science Quiz Template (Sample Questions, Auto Timed, Easy to Change)

Science Quiz Template (Sample Questions, Auto Timed, Easy to Change)

This is a resource that I created for my KS3 classes to revise topics and lead fun quizzes. The quiz is easily changed to suit the requirement for the lesson and I find that the format works well. Student’s play ‘rounds’ and each question is automatically displayed for a set period of time before the next question, I have found this holds the pace of the quiz well and engages students. The timings for each question can be easily changed or removed in the ‘transitions tab’. This resource comes with a sample of questions set already and the accompanying ‘team worksheet’.
