Indoor air quality: how much is it affecting our ability to work productively? 15 August, 2016 - For a long time, reducing air leakage in buildings and thus making the environment less drafty and reducing energy wastage, has been thought desirable, However, it seems that we may not have taken into account some important side effects on air quality. Increasingly, scientists are becoming concerned that  the reduction in air leakage and consequent reduced ventilation is resulting in […]
Microclimates and datalogging – a great way to engage students 3 August, 2016 - One of the most exciting things about datalogging is that it enables students to make their own discoveries about the world around them. Research into teaching methods increasingly emphasises the importance of making subject material relevant and meaningful to students. Datalogging can help students to do that, because the very accurate data obtained from sensors […]
The official BBC micro:bit iOS app is now live 1 April, 2016 - Last week saw the launch of the ground-breaking BBC micro:bit, a pocket-sized codeable computer that allows young people to get creative with technology, which is being delivered free to all year 7 or equivalent students in the UK. Hard on its heels follows the launch of the BBC micro:bit iOS app, the essential link between […]

The Practical Endorsement: towards a more ‘real-world’ approach to science? 29 October, 2015 - This September the way in which practical work is assessed and carried out has changed significantly and, with that, we hope it has introduced a much needed emphasis on experimentation and ‘real world’ science. As of this year students will have to carry out a series of twelve ‘core practicals’ in order to develop their […]
Setting up IoT schools in Singapore – smart schools for a smart nation 6 October, 2015 - A few weeks ago we wrote about our groundbreaking Internet of Things project in Singapore. Following on from Project Distance and the Peterborough Internet of Things projects the InfoComm Development Authority (IDA) of Singapore has commissioned ScienceScope to establish a similar project in Singapore. The concept of ‘smart cities’, cities which harness the power of information […]
