Teaching on a high

16th September 2005 at 01:00
Appearing for the first time at SETT holds no fears for Counting Thoughts, a scientific software consultancy, which recently tested its innovative ideas at the top of a Scottish mountain.

The mass of the Earth was first determined by an 18th century expedition to Schiehallion, which spent several months on the mountain. In June this year the directors of Counting Thoughts made the measurements in just one day, with the help of modern equipment, their own software, and a party of pupils and teachers.

Counting Thoughts products featured at SETT 2005 include: SURE Higher Physics, which provides interactive simulations of experiments; SURE Q, a new ICT tool for formative assessment; and a "graphically-rich, interactive skeleton" that allows joints and bones to be viewed and manipulated in 3D.
