FameLab videos in the classroom

Searching on YouTube you will find over 35,000 videos by young scientists who have taken part in the world’s fastest growing competition for science communication, FameLab. Search the British Council Germany YouTube channel or the FameLab UK channel, to find 3-minute videos on all STEM topics. Use these videos to illustrate, enthuse, and amaze your students.

British Council's Voices magazine

The Voices online magazine offers a range of interesting texts that could be used in the classroom. Search for the science articles by filtering your results, and be prepared to read some amazing stories by scientists from all over the world!  

Our School Slam with MINT-EC

How can pupils best learn to present STEM-topics in English? We are organising a School Slam in cooperation with MINT-EC - join the competition with a small group of pupils by presenting a STEM-topic in a short video in an engaging way.

Other resources

We have developed a series of resources, in partnership with The Royal Society, to enhance science learning in schools. The Royal Society is the national academy of science in the UK and the Commonwealth. Its fundamental purpose is to recognise, promote and support excellence in science, encouraging its development and use for the benefit of humanity.
