Acids and Bases in the Home

Acids and Bases in the Home

This programme familiarises students with the features of acids and bases, and discusses their physical and chemical properties. The pH scale is introduced with examples of strong and weak acids and bases and the concept of neutral substances is...Show More
Applying the Concepts

Applying the Concepts

The programme covers Le Chatelier's principle, the equilibrium law, calculating K. It examines how K changes when the temperature of exothermic and endothermic reactions changes, with a focus on sulphuric acid manufacture.
Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry

Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry

Chemical analysis is integral to modern society. The testing of consumer goods, industrial products and food relies upon a number of different techniques. This program will investigate the analytical techniques of chromatography, mass...Show More
Atoms

Atoms

What's the "big" deal about atoms? They're too small to see with our eyes, so what good are they? Bill Nye explains how atoms combine to form molecules in this fascinating program.
Atoms and Their Electrons

Atoms and Their Electrons

OUR TOP VIDEO - STUDENTS LOVE IT!! History of the picture of the Atom with a particular focus on; Dalton, Thomson, Rutherford, Bohr, etc. We build up the first 18 atoms by adding protons, neutrons, and electrons.This video also looks at how atoms...Show More
Bohr's Model of the Atom

Bohr's Model of the Atom

This programme focuses on Neils Bohr, who worked with some of the best physicists of the 20th century to devise his atomic model. Students will gain an understanding of the historical developments in atomic theories up to Bohr, a brief outline of...Show More
Bonding between Atoms

Bonding between Atoms

This programme covers: * Electrons in clouds around atoms. * The electrons of halogens outer shell. * The electrons of alkali metal outer shell. * Carbon diamond and graphite share electrons. * Chlorine combining with the third row, a range of...Show More
Build Your Own Lavalamp

Build Your Own Lavalamp

The trick to a great lavalamp is finding two fluids that won't mix.
Carbon Chemistry

Carbon Chemistry

The special properties of carbon lead to half the known compounds being centred around it. This advanced film looks at the variety of carbon compounds, their nomenclature, structure and uses footage from the laboratory and industry.
Carbon Cycles and Cycles

Carbon Cycles and Cycles

Our animated atoms have been prevailed upon to make another appearance. At the "Club Chlorophyll", carbon atoms set off on their various carbon cycles. This animated and fun programme looks at: - Glucose - Starch - Cellulose - Coal - Oil -...Show More
Carbon Dioxide and Fire

Carbon Dioxide and Fire

Carbon dioxide is very effective for extinguishing fires. Learn about the nature of carbon dioxide in dry ice form through everyday science experiments with people on the streets of Toronto.
Changes in States of Matter

Changes in States of Matter

This video will introduce students to the three states of matter. Students will be able to identify the three states of matter, and how matter moves between each state.
Changing States of Matter

Changing States of Matter

Using experiments, graphics and film this program explains the following topics for junior secondary science students. - Particle theory of matter - Changes of state - Latent heat - Expanding and contracting - States of matter all around us....Show More
Chemical Equations in the Real World

Chemical Equations in the Real World

The word 'chemicals' might bring to mind pools of swirling, poisonous mixtures, dangerous acids or secret formulas... but they are far more prominent in everyday life than we might first think. Very little in the physical world around us occurs...Show More
Chemical Reactions

Chemical Reactions

Have a blast watching the explosive examples Bill Nye uses to explain that everything is made of chemicals. Guest star Candace Cameron ("Full House") shares the lab with Bill and shows that fire is actually a chemical reaction. Together, they...Show More
