Giving non-specialists and newly qualified teachers the confidence to deliver impactful, engaging KS4 physics lessons

Explaining common misconceptions to students can be difficult. How do you explain that thermal energy is a store but light is a pathway? How do you explain why balanced forces on an object are not the same as a Newton’s Third Law pair?

Physics Fuel: Power Boosts are a series of short, teacher-focused CPD films to support you in overcoming those common misconceptions. Carefully created by a team of expert teacher-trainers, the films cover 20 different topics, providing you with practical advice and no-fuss experiments that you can implement in your next lesson.

Whether you’re struggling to explain a topic and feel less confident in your own subject knowledge, or whether you’re just looking for some fresh ideas to reboost your physics lessons and engage students, you can dip in and out of the bank of films at a time that suits you.

So grab yourself a cup of coffee, and let’s get started!
