    Succeeding with science

    Succeeding with Science is an educational programme designed to nurture an enthusiasm for science, engineering, technology and mathematics in young people. The available resources are produced for teachers by teachers. As teaching aids, they are designed to fit precisely into the curriculum and are produced to high standards of innovation and good practice. Such is the quality of these resources that they are recommended by examining bodies, curriculum advisers and subject co-ordinators.

    Here’s a quick animation from Succeeding with Science considering the greenhouse effect.

    Textorizer is a program that allows you to make pictures formed with text.  All it does is takes some picture and creates a similar one that is made of text and words. Click on the thumbnails below to see some maths related  images I made up:

    Textorizer is a very easy to use desktop application. You could easily spend hours creating some wonderful imagery for your classrom. Lets the kids have a go and I think you will be amazed at what they create.
