This downloadable product consists of an editable Powerpoint lesson and PDF information sheet describing forms of carbon from amorphous, diamond and graphite to nanotubes and fullerenes.
Helpful to have a molecule modelling set – that can be made from bioplastics, salt dough etc.

Make your own floating pen with this kit - a scientific toy that is fun to make and own. It 'mysteriously' floats on air and demonstrates the effects of magnetism.
The toy - once constructed - can be used as a very low friction bearing - as shown in Rob's videos - and as the base of lots of other experiments and models§
Not a biography or autobiography, but a collection of thoughts on science, philosophy and life's minutia. An insight into Rob's life and how his mind works with an introduction to each section by his wife.
FWG's Mad about Science series of YouTube videos and kits are designed to inspire exciting but safe experimentation for kids of all ages.
The Basic Lab Equipment kit contains a range of laboratory equipment needed to explore some of the properties of different materials - linked to the KS1, KS2 and KS3 science curriculum - so suitable for STEM or STEAM clubs, home school or just for fun. Youtube videos explain how to make a rocket, an erupting volcano, homemade fizzy lemonade, foaming soap, mouldable bioplastics and many more easy and exciting projects using the equipment from the kit and some things you probably have at home.
SAFETY WARNING: This kit is not suitable for children under 6 years old. Contents are made of plastic unless otherwise stated but may still have some sharp edges. Includes some small pieces that may be ingested. Broken equipment should not be used and should be sent for recycling, if possible. All equipment should be used with adult supervision and kept away from children under 6 years old.
Being such a fascinating material lots of people are interested in it and it has become something of a mystery that is generally thought of as being something only an expensive lab can produce. This is far from the truth. This book grew out of a series of YouTube videos I created to show how Graphene could be made in your own home with a minimum of materials and tools.
