GCSE Physics Required Practicals

GCSE Physics Required Practicals without a lab

The link below is to a powerpoint file for the workshop delivered in March 2022. This introductory session provided demonstrations of simulations that can be used to facilitate teaching of required practicals.

Watch the YouTube video of the session from 23rd March 2022 led by Christina Astin.

Useful Simulations

Our trainer, Christina Astin has also collated link a list of useful simulations. This spreadsheet maps all the GCSE required physics practicals for AQA, Edexcel and OCR to online simulations and virtual labs.

All are free (or at least offered on a free trial), most run straight from the internet but some require a download. These are simply our recommendations – there are plenty more examples on the internet. Please feel free to share with science teaching colleagues!

Have you seen our Physics Fuel Videos?

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.
