A look at how different gases are used in everyday life for heating, cooking, spraying, scuba diving, flying, swimming and so on. Note: There is no narration in this clip.

This clip is from:
Science Clips, Gases around Us
First broadcast:
11 October 2007

Following on from an initial brainstorm, the clip could be used to establish pupil perception of what a gas is and of their personal daily encounters. It would enable the pupils to experience and observe more incidences of gases in everyday life. The pupils could then be encouraged to discuss the clip and watch it again a bit at a time and make suggestions about what and where the gases actually are in the images they have seen.
