My pick of the week this week was really difficult. Obviously everyone should be watching Brian Cox’s new series The Wonders of Life, but for A level biologists students, two Radio 4 iPlayer programmes were fantastic. Pop Up Economics is a 15 minute introduction to innovation which discusses why the British Olympic Cycling Team are the best in the world, and why if you’re told ‘No’ in science you maybe should go ahead and do it anyway. Then Adam Rutherford’s two-part documentary on the natural history of Sexual Nature was great, and one that I’m going to set as snow work for my A level biologists if I’m stuck at home tomorrow. Plus it features #ASEChat hero Prof Steve Jones :).
Sarah has also suggested http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0110dsc – The Story of Physics from the BBC Science Club as the video of the week. A good introduction to Physics for KS3/4.
