Future Morph: Science Journalist
In this Future Morph video, freelance science writer Helen Carmichael talks about writing on a range of topics and for different audiences. She describes how she combines her knowledge of science with skills in researching and presenting information to produce an engaging science-based story. Helen describes how she may be asked to write on a wide range of topics and how being able to gather and anlyse information is an important part of her job.
In the related activities students investigate the resistance changes in a filament and write a magazine article to explain why bulbs 'blow' when they are turned on, rather than when they are already lit.
An associated resources booklet, which can be found in the Introduction to Future Morph Resources, organises the resources into themes, provides an overview of the teachers’ notes, describes practical activities and suggests cross-curricular links.
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.
