Download our activity packs

Our British Science Week 2021 taster and full activity packs were released in November 2020 and January 2021 respectively. The packs encourage young people to think about everyday discoveries and how they affect their lives, and to explore science in the world all around us. We have activities for three different age groups: early years, primary and secondary.

If you’re looking for activity inspiration ahead of the next British Science Week, you can check out and download our activity packs from the last five years!
