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?



Skittle Science

Using Skittles, you can learn how water molecules move around in water, and how they can transfer and move other things around too.


Moon Craters

Have you ever looked up at the moon and wondered why it has all those big holes, or craters, in it? It's all to do with the type of object or satalite which has come into contact with its surface. This video shows how you can test the speed, size, and shape of an object, and find out what kind of crater it would cause.


A programme on Science

This is a programme where Gareth Jones teaches us lots of little experiments to try. He also explains the physics behind paper aeroplanes, so if you want to make a paper aeroplane, you can skip to 18:23 minutes or 31:26 minutes in. You can also inolve a trick with lets you pur water really quickly, go to 46:13. This will teach you a bit more about forces, and help you visiualise how they work.


Rainbow Project

A huge thank you to our friends at the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering at Bangor University for letting us share the Rainbow Project work with you! From colour mixing, to coding and lasers, there's lots of interesting things going on. Click the image below to get to their website!

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

Online Safety

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.

Balloons

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.


Defying gravity

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 home...be very careful! Every good scientist knows that safety is the most important thing when trying out anything new.
