Science resources

from Discovery Education Secondary

Show students the potential of science

UK business and industry has a huge demand for graduates with scientific knowledge and skills, but too few students are deciding to continue studying science beyond their GCSEs.

Discovery Education Secondary offers more than 1300 science resources for KS3 and KS4 to inspire your students with curiosity and interest for the subject, and encourage them to consider studying it at a higher level.

All our resources are created by experienced teachers and curriculum specialists, with material from trusted sources such as: the Science Channel, Discovery Channel, Animal Planet and BBC Worldwide, so you can be confident of their quality and relevance.

Show students why science matters

Our content will save you time searching for relevant and engaging resources to support your lessons, and you'll be able to demonstrate connections between classroom science, and concepts and processes at work in the wider world. Your students will be able to research topics, recap and revise, and experience science experiments that it would be impossible to recreate in the classroom.

You will be able to:

  • demonstrate scientific concepts and processes
  • play, download, edit and share over 1000 videos
  • engage students and assess their understanding of a topic with ready-made quizzes
  • add a variety of media to your lessons quickly with slideshows, worksheets and images
  • explore topics in depth with Content collections on key topic areas, which are supported by teacher guides to help plan your lessons
Open students' minds to the power of science

Spark your students’ curiosity by exploring fascinating topics in biology, chemistry and physics through the pre-selected Content Collections. The collections provide videos, slideshows and worksheets, with comprehensive teacher support and suggested activities.

Whether it’s watching Professor Brian Cox explaining the process of nuclear fusion, or learning about the impact of climate change from the Oscar-nominated documentary Racing Extinction, these resources will help open your students' minds to the incredible power and potential of science. Example collections include:

  • Climate change

  • Electrolysis

  • Genetic engineering

  • Hydrocarbons

  • Models of the atom

  • Nuclear fusion

  • Photosynthesis

  • Water management

A partner shares

Well I think because we're all quite visual learners, being able to use a Discovery Education Secondary video and share the content of that in the classroom, means that rather than just reading the text from a book, or looking at a diagram, students can see the actual process happening in front of them.
