Welcome, Young Dynamos!

From time to time, we'll be updating this page, so do keep checking back for more content.

What is M-SParc anyway?

Do you like learning about science in school? Maybe you've been thinking about choosing a science subject for your A-levels, or even at University. Or maybe you've been thinking about starting your own company with a new and innovative idea. M-SParc wants to help with all these things. Maybe we can be the place where you start your company, or perhaps there is a company already at M-SParc who is looking for staff and can offer you work, so that you do not have to move far from home to work!

M-SParc will also work with schools. As part of this, we have some games, videos, and information on this page to help you. Maybe you'll find something of interest!

What exactly counts as 'science'? Is it only the things we do at school?

Almost everything comes back to science. Take a look at some of the resources our friends at'Science Made Simple'have provided for us.

In this video, you can learn more about staying safe online. What does this have to do with science? Well, science helped create this resource, science is used to run websites such as Facebook, and science can help create new technology to allow young people to stay safe while using the web. What else can be created like this? What if someone has some confidential information that they are using within their company, and they need a way to ensure no one else can find it? There is more than one way to use science and technology, and with some imagination there's no end to what you can do.

Can you get a mobile phone inside a balloon? It looks like a magic trick, and perhaps that's how you'll use it! But think of the ways you could use the science behind it. If you can learn more about air movement and forces, what else could you do? What about creating a way to save people in a hot air balloon if there's a problem, or even a way to get people into space! When you know the science behind it, who knows what you could create.

And what about this video? Can you think of other ways to use this method? Do you even know how it works?? Science can sometimes raise more questions than ansers, and this is a good thing. You can now learn a bit more about the task, and maybe even think of a better way of completing it. Or perhaps the science behind it looks like something which could help out in an emergency; for example how can something like this help when there is a flood? Lastly, if you do try this at very careful! Every good scientist knows that safety is the most important thing when trying out anything new.
