NPL Measurement at home

This is a great resource put together by the NPL. Its called 'measurement-at-home'  but most of the activities are perfectly suited to the classroom - with the benefit of being generally low-tech and easily managed. 

My personal favourite is 'Where on Earth am I?' - which introduces students to satellites in general and GPS in particular, while also teaching them about precision and helping them understand a little about their phones work.  Find it at :  Measurement at home - NPL

Loads of great activities, that link in with key physics activities and  that can be carried out with students phones, including....

  • measuring altitude with a pressure sensor (you could measure the height of your school)

  • measuring the acceleration of a lift

  • measuring the speed of sound 

  • frequency of a soundwave
