British Science Week 2024 activity packs are now available!

The free activity packs for British Science Week 2024, which will take place between 8 to 17 March 2024, are available to download now! For children and young people from under 5s to around age 14, we offer a Early Years pack, Primary pack and Secondary pack. Our Community pack is coming soon!

The theme for 2024’s packs and poster competition is ‘Time’, and the packs provide fun and engaging ways to introduce this theme to the children.

Each pack, created with the support of UK Research and Innovation, includes a wide range of fun, hands-on activities, and loads of useful information for planning your events for the Week.

We hope you enjoy the packs, and we love to see the activities in action! Tag us with #BSW24 on @ScienceWeekUK in any photos, videos or other British Science Week news.


Many of the activities are suitable for CREST Awards, so if you enjoyed using them, why not think about running a CREST Award? CREST Awards give students real-life experience of being a scientist while getting introduced to STEM project work. They are nationally accredited and are a fun, yet educational way to get your children involved in STEM subjects.
