For some more shocking fun, you could book our Maxwell's Rainbow 3D show, or go to our James Clerk Maxwell, Electricity and Magnetism resources page.

Science@Nasa Explanation of the Electromagnetic spectrum.
Of course, I also really like our own explanation that forms the basis for our own Maxwell's Rainbow 3D travelling school show.
Just shows what can be achieved with a little sticky tape and a lot of drive and inspiration.
With thanks to @digitalmaverick for tweeting the link to this video.

A living wall, also referred to as a green wall, vertical garden, or sky farm, is usually part of a building and consists of some sort of vegetation. These types of gardens are sometimes referred to as urban gardening, because they are well-suited for an urban environment where space on the ground is very limited but vertical space is plentiful. These vertical gardens can be quite spectacular in appearance, and in some cases, they even work to filter clean air into the building in which they are growing upon.
!! this is a work in progress, so please chip in with ideas, solutions and of course questions :-)
Inspired by the above New York WindowFarms project, the aim is to develop an integrated topic that is suitable for both primary and secondary students.
As the pilot project progresses we will include examples of the students work.
Basic Plan :
Stage 1 : Discussion with students. What do plants need & where do they grow?
Stage 2 : Experiments : testing growing mediums, nutrients & lighting requirements.
Stage 3 : Monitoring the experiments using Digital Diary/Logbook, video, photos, spreadsheet
