Resources for British Science Week

** This post has been updated for 2018.

When it comes to teaching science, educators can have a big influence on shaping the thoughts and opinions of young people. 

British Science Week takes place across the UK from 9th to 18th March 2018 and involves organisations and schools carrying out events and activities in science, maths, technology and engineering. The British Science Association helps schools plan for the week by providing them with these free activities and resources. 

‘Change’ is the theme for the 10 day science programme which aims to encourage young people to investigate the world’s changes happening all around us; from seasons and climate, to materials and energy. It also helps young people to think of how they can makes changes to positively impact the environment we live in.
