Dr Chips Daily Dose of Science, Engineering, computing

 

Each week day Dr Chips uploads a STEM (Science, technology, engineering, mechanics) video for children to complete. Some of the activities do require equipment that you could find at home (But ask parents permission before using anything) other activities can be done with just a computer and the internet.

THE FASCINATING WORLD OF CYBER SECURITY

Did you know millions of cyber attacks happen every day around the world? Did you know some people's jobs are to try and hack into businesses to check how secure they are!? Do you know how long it would take a computer to crack your password!?

In this Friday's Dose we're going to learn a little about about the fascinating world of cyber security, including an interview with a cyber security expert! I'll also show you a really cool tool for checking how secure your password is!

Resources required: Pen and paper, computer with internet

BUILD YOUR OWN LAVA LAMP

​Title: BUILD YOUR OWN LAVA LAMP
Description: Lava lamps are both mesmerising and beautiful to look at and in this Daily Dose we're going to make our own! I'll show you two different ways to make your lava lamp depending on which of the resources you can get hold of most easily (see below). You'll want your camera ready for this one to send in some pictures - they really do look fab!

Resources required: Drinking glass, oil (vegetable oil works well), water, food colouring
THEN EITHER baking soda and vinegar OR an Alka seltzer tablet

SUPER SOUNDS

Can we hear and see sound? Would you like to find out how to make musical instruments using glass bottles and empty containers? In this investigation, we're going to explore how to change the pitch of sounds. We're then going to ask some scientific questions and see what patterns we can spot in what we listen to.

Thanks to @GreatSciShare and @SpringLearns for developing this resource.

Resources required:
Empty containers with lids (plastic bottles would do) and lots of small things to fill the containers (rice, pasta, seeds, gravel….etc)
Empty glass bottle(s)
Water
Plastic straws and scissors (alternative but not essential)

Hand Jives

Decomposition is about breaking complex tasks down into more manageable parts. In this Daily Dose we're going to use decomposition to break down a sequence of moves for our hand jive routines into smaller step-by-step sections to make them easier to learn. They'll be some funky hand jives happening this Tuesday!

​Resources required: Pen, paper, creativity
Age: KS1 or KS 2
