Seismometer (difficulty level: 4/5 - fairly hard)
Seismometer
Seismometers are instruments which detect movement in the Earth’s tectonic plates. They operate on the principle of inertia (a body at rest will remain that...
Difficulty Level: 4/5 - fairly hard
Solar Oven (difficulty level: 3/5 - needs some expertise)
Solar Oven
This Workshop shows how to construct a solar oven from an old pizza box. If placed in direct sunlight for half an hour or so,...
Difficulty Level: 3/5 - needs some expertise
Solar Radiometer (difficulty level: 2/5 - fairly easy)
Solar Radiometer
This guide shows how to construct a solar radiometer. This radiometer consists of four squares of aluminium foil attached to a suspended match....
Difficulty Level: 2/5 - fairly easy
Speed of Sound Clapper (difficulty level: 2/5 - fairly easy)
Speed of Sound Clapper
Students are sometimes required to measure the speed of sound using a clapper, a stopwatch and a long tape measure or trundle wheel. The clapper...
Difficulty Level: 2/5 - fairly easy
Thermal Actuator (difficulty level: 4/5 - fairly hard)
Thermal Actuator
A thermal actuator is an electro-mechanical device which moves or actuates when an electrical current is applied. In this model, a nitinol spring is used...
Difficulty Level: 4/5 - fairly hard
Transmission Lines (difficulty level: 1/5 - very simple)
Transmission Lines
This is a very simple guide which shows how to construct a set of transmission lines, used in physics lessons to demonstrate how electricity is...
Difficulty Level: 1/5 - very simple
Wave Maker (difficulty level: 4/5 - fairly hard)
Wave Maker
This guide shows how to construct a fairly complex wave model which can produce transverse waves. Polystyrene balls are attached to wooden rods which then...
Difficulty Level: 4/5 - fairly hard
Wind Turbine (difficulty level: 4/5 - fairly hard)
Wind Turbine
This model wind turbine is very similar in construction to the colour wheel also featured in this section. It consists of a small 3V motor...
Difficulty Level: 4/5 - fairly hard
