Thanks to fellow twitterer Sophie Bessemer for tipping me off about these science resources from BP Educational Services, the education department of the energy company.

Secondary Science teachers might want to check out the Carbon Footprint Toolkit. This teaches students about carbon emissions and their impacts, choices for carbon reduction and alternative energy supplies. The Toolkit includes an interactive school carbon calculator, quick-fire activities, factsheets, energy animations, a picture gallery and  teachers’ notes. It could be used as part of both KS3 and KS4 science lessons, as well as geography.

You can access a preview of the toolkit here. And login to order it for free.

For Primary Science, there are some great resources in the Young Science Investigators series aimed at KS2 pupils. These resources include the following modules:

All these resources are free, but you do need to register with the site to get them although registration is also free.

It’s also worth taking a look at the free resources that you can order and have sent to your school such as posters and CD-ROM materials.

Take a look at these resources and see what you think. Could they be used to support science on your Interactive Whiteboard?
