A Satellite

A Satellite

Satellites have allowed us to see and hear the world as it happens – the images we see on our televisions can make a 72,000 kilometre-round trip in less than a second. This film documents how satellites are built, work and are used. It meets...Show More
A Song of Fire and Safety

A Song of Fire and Safety

When it comes to fire safety in the workplace, we might be tempted to think that it's not our concern, or that there's plenty of other things to worry about—until it's too late. However, it's everyone's responsibility to prevent fires. That...Show More
A Super Car

A Super Car

McLaren is known the world over for its high performance Formula One racing cars. Now McLaren is joining the market of building high performance sports cars for the luxury car market. In this fascinating programme, we step inside the...Show More
A Super Jumbo Wing

A Super Jumbo Wing

The Airbus A380 has revolutionised travel through the design of a new more sophisticated plane capable of flying more people greater distances without needing to refuel. This fascinating programme takes you into the heart of the Airbus factory...Show More
Acceleration

Acceleration

In this episode, we introduce students to the concept that acceleration is a measure of how quickly something changes its speed. We join James Bond as he falls out of an aeroplane without a parachute, splash into the water at 50.4 km/hr with...Show More
Acid/Base Chemistry: Proton Power

Acid/Base Chemistry: Proton Power

This lesson continues the discussion of acids and bases started in Lesson 6. You will learn how to identify the difference between acids, bases, and salts, including their structure, formula, physical properties, and the substances they interact...Show More
Acids and Bases in the Home

Acids and Bases in the Home

This programme familiarises students with the features of acids and bases, and discusses their physical and chemical properties. The pH scale is introduced with examples of strong and weak acids and bases and the concept of neutral substances is...Show More
Acids in Industry

Acids in Industry

In Acids in Industry, we look at what acids are, how they're made, and how they're used in steel making and agriculture. We also take a quick trip back to the 1770s to look at how acids were used by Captain James Cook to save his crew from the...Show More
Action Planning and Continuous Improvement

Action Planning and Continuous Improvement

Problem solving and root cause analysis, using fishbone or Ishikawa diagrams and the '5 Whys' method.
Adjustments to Manufacturing Operations

Adjustments to Manufacturing Operations

Adjusting parameters in the manufacturing process and the impact of variations on the quality, cost and output of the process. Using Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) as a key performance indicator.
Allocating Roles

Allocating Roles

Analysing team roles and team analysis techniques. Identifying strengths and how development can support improvement.
Ammeter, Voltmeter and Multimeter

Ammeter, Voltmeter and Multimeter

This video explains the uses of the ammeter and demonstrates how they must be connected in a circuit. It also describes how a multimeter can measure different electrical quantities (i.e. current and voltage).
Angle Grinder

Angle Grinder

Competency to operate is vital when using any power tool. This snippet outlines the key safety factors you should know before operating an angle grinder, and during operation.
Applications of Scalar and Vector Quantities

Applications of Scalar and Vector Quantities

Calculating scalar and vector quantities is vital to understanding collisions. Using tennis court action, this clip examines various quantities including initial and final velocity, displacement, acceleration and time. A number of clearly worked...Show More
