This collection of STEM resources is based around the topic of units. Resources are listed in order of stage.

Temperature

Age 11 to 14 Challenge Level:

Is there a temperature at which Celsius and Fahrenheit readings are the same?

More or Less?

Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

Are these estimates of physical quantities accurate?

Bigger or Smaller?

Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

When you change the units, do the numbers get bigger or smaller?

Choose Your Units

Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

Which units would you choose best to fit these situations?

A Question of Scale

Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

Use your skill and knowledge to place various scientific lengths in order of size. Can you judge the length of objects with sizes ranging from 1 Angstrom to 1 million km with no wrong attempts?

Big and Small Numbers in Physics

Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

Work out the numerical values for these physical quantities.

Constantly Changing

Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

Many physical constants are only known to a certain accuracy. Explore the numerical error bounds in the mass of water and its constituents.
