Access a full lesson guide and activity sheets, available in the ‘Get ready for the Live Lesson’ section below. Add up how many of your pupils are tasters, non-tasters and supertasters, and email your results to – we will reveal as many as we can during the live programme. Help your pupils prepare for this Live Lesson by doing their own Terrific Scientific taste investigation. All the information you need to deliver this simple classroom activity can be found on the BBC Terrific Scientific website. As part of the new BBC science campaign Terrific Scientific, this Live Lesson will help your pupils to think and work like a scientist, with a focus on taste, nutrition, and the energy that food provides.

Opportunities for children to meet the full range of scientific investigative approaches entail pattern seeking, exploring, problem solving, fair testing, and analysing secondary sources. The on-demand lessons are one of many excellent ways to motivate and engage students with GCSE-level science while schools are facng disruption due to COVID-19. While parents may find the lessons a useful way to include science into their child’s studying, they should follow the advice of their child’s school.

Working scientifically, investigations and meaningful outcomes are incorporated into each block. The problem is that fast vs slow muscle fibre classification has caused a lot of confusion over the years. Many people in the gym would probably tell you that slow muscle fibres take longer to contract while quicker and bigger muscle fibres are the only ones used for rapid-fire muscle activity. Please help us spread the news about our awesome products. We brought The Virtuali-Tee into St Bartholomew’s Primary Academy in the UK to see how the teachers and kids would react. We also have a Stemettes group and are interested in exploring the wide range of Expeditions that celebrate women in science.

In this article, Beast Gear is going to give you a bit of a science lesson as we take a look at why muscle activation matters. Yup, while we’re not PhD level students or anything, we understand that the best training programs are the ones that are backed by scientific research. Develop your students’ science skills with this Lesson Plan pack. Designed to give you a taster of what the science curriculum has to offer, it should certainly whet your students’ appetite to know more.

Shaun Allison started teaching science in West Sussex, before becoming a head of science. He is currently deputy head teacher at Durrington High School.

Each lesson focuses on different topics and is tailored to the different stages of Science learning. If you’ve got burning questions for our special guests about working scientifically and setting up experiments, send them in to or get in touch on #bbclivelessons and they could be featured in the live Q&A on the day.
