Wednesday 22nd April - Earth Day

Given the unusual situation that many of us find ourselves living in at the moment, it might be easy to forget that there is a whole wide world out there ripe for exploring. Wednesday 22 April marks the international celebration of Earth Day and what better time than to commemorate our planet and show worldwide appreciation of all that it has to offer. 

Into Films have put together a collection of films (mostly available on Now TV, Netflix etc) that they believe will serve as passionate and exciting reminders of planet Earth and how much work we have ahead of us to preserve our wonderful home

Year 12 and Year 13 Physics Videos from Dr Alan Wood (NTU)

Due to NTU having to cancel their Physics Experience Day, Dr Alan Wood their Senior Lecturer & Physics Admissions Tutor has decided to upload a series of videos to his YouTube channel, designed to introduce year 12 and 13 physics students to some great physics which is not part of the core curriculum – something you  can watch and enjoy for fun. 

Each video is about 10 minutes long, and will give you some questions to consider before the next video. Some of these questions involve calculations, others involve you reading up on a particular subject. Answers will be given at the start of the next video. 

Videos will be published on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the foreseeable future.
