Terrific Scientific Forces - Live Lesson: Additional video clips

Follow-up programme

We’ve created a full length follow-up programme to this Live Lesson which features our expert guests answering your questions and new curricula linked activities building on students’ learning in the live programme.

Shorter clips from the follow-up programme are also available below, useful for covering individual topics.

Learn about frictional forces and the difference between mass and weight

Full version follow-up programme

This EXTRA programme continues with the theme of forces that affect speed, exploring the force of friction, the difference between mass and weight and how friction can be reduced.

Your class will need these downloadable activity sheets:

What is friction?

What is friction?

This is a shorter video clip from the follow-up programme exploring the force of friction and how it works.

Mass and weight

Mass and weight

This is a shorter video clip from the follow-up programme looks at mass and weight and how this affects speed.
