In this episode from the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), students find out about the causes of climate change and how researchers use massive computers to help them understand its effects. The Robots find out about one gas that has a stronger greenhouse effect than carbon dioxide. And finally, the computer suggests a few ways people might be able to slow climate change.
The GAIA-TECH Robo Researchers have been specially created to introduce different areas of science to primary school children. The animations introduce key words to describe some of the science topics in a fun format and show images of some of the more extreme places where scientists work.
NERC is a part of Research Councils UK (RCUK).
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
