Primary Science Lesson Activity Generator

I was inspired by John Davitt’s excellent Learning Event Generator and wanted to produce a similar version for Primary Science. Partly because I wanted to create some fun ideas for science and also because I wanted to try to brush up my Flash programming skills (or lack of them)

The end result is the beta version of the Primary Science Lesson Activity Generator. This is very much a beta, and I may be tweaking the events that can be produced in the future. But at present there are over 3,600 possible permutations – click the generate button to produce a new lesson idea.

I hope you like the ideas that it generates.

Please also be sure to vist Johns other versions of the generator. You can now also get his activity generator as a rather cool iPhone application. I don’t currently have an iPhone, but if I did I’d definitely get this application!

This blog aims to name and shame the companies that make claims that their products are “Chemical Free”

Some of these images would make great discussion pieces about the use of science words in real life, the role of chemicals, what is a “chemical” etc.

For example a chemistry set that is “chemical free”…

If you know of any other sources for these kind of images, put a note in the comments!

Apparently the Royal Society of Chemistry has a £1 million prize to any company who can prove that their product is 100% Chemical free!

Take a look at : http://fnochemicalfree.tumblr.com/
