Would you let one of your students use an AK47 automatic weapon?

With the Virtual Physics Laboratory they can fire an AK47 at a ballistic balance and calculate the muzzle velocity of the shell – without the possibility of causing any harm.

This is just one of a set of 20 virtual Physics experiments that include many of the AQA required activities. They are extremely realistic and really do give the look and feel of doing the actual experiments, but there’s no setting up, nothing to break, wear out or steal and the equipment always works!

These virtual experiments can really save you time and be a big factor in your students gaining much more experience of practical science.

Have a look at our website here: http://www.keylinkcomputers.co.uk/virtualscienceexperiments.html

Where you can watch a video of the experiments in action and find a complete list of all the experiments. You will also find a couple of experiments you can try.

If you have any questions or would like a demonstration please do let me know.

“I thought that the controls were pretty easy to get used to and the detail in the apparatus was excellent being able to zoom in and see the set up of the multimeter and read scales, being careful of parallax. This type of software is most useful in experiments which can’t be done in the lab like the gravity on the moon or where the equipment is too expensive or difficult to use like the Millikan Oil drop.”

A lesson in the art of (almost) everything

Is it really possible that an art class can raise the self-esteem of every pupil?

Put another way, can art, where children’s innate abilities seem to vary so greatly, have a positive effect on the social and emotional development of all pupils?

We believe the answer to that question is a resounding “yes” – and the mechanism to achieve this is a skills-based approach.

The lesson activities in our Painting is a Class Act and Drawing is a Class Act Series Packs for Key Stage 1 and 2 have been designed to focus on developing children’s painting and drawing skills, whilst at the same time boosting pupils’ self-esteem and confidence which in turn will help promote high standards in other curriculum areas.

In using the resources pupils will learn to record their ideas and experiences through drawing and painting, develop the ability to use the language of art to analyse creative works, expand their knowledge of great artists, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.

The resources provide a structured, skills-based approach to the development of painting and drawing skills (and other skills that come with it) with easy-to-follow lesson plans, clear progression of skills to be taught, and examples of how these skills can be applied with examples of pupils’ artwork for every lesson.

Painting is a Class Act and Drawing is a Class Act Series Packs cover all the National Curriculum Programmes of Study relating to painting and drawing respectively, and have been designed to support non-specialist art teachers in teaching art and to inspire the experienced.

What’s more, the Drawing is a Class Act resources are winners of Best Curriculum Material in the Global Learning Initiative Awards at Bologna Children’s Book Fair 2006.
