The free use of a virtual science experiment platform for schools has been extended until August by academics at the University of Sheffield.

FlashyScience is a website which allows GCSE and A Level science students to complete virtual experiments relevant to their syllabus, such as Hooke’s Law, Ohm’s Law, Specific Heat Capacity and Radioactivity.

The website was developed by academics from the University of Sheffield’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering to match the practical requirements for science students

The developers of FlashyScience, Professor Dan Allwood and Dr Julian Dean, use the resource to teach new students in materials science, general engineering, mechanical engineering and aerospace, but opened it up to schools when the pandemic struck last year.

  • Any schools or teachers who would like to access the resources should email info@flashyscience.com or visit https://flashyscience.com to request a free licence.
