The theme for the 2021 activity packs was ‘Innovating for the future’

The theme for the British Science Week 2021 activity packs and poster competition was ‘Innovating for the future’. We are very excited about these packs, which have been created in partnership with UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), Mewburn Ellis and 3M, and are available not just during British Science Week 2021, but all year round!

Our full activity packs contain lots of activities on this theme and are able to be used at home or in the classroom to reflect the potentially fluid movements around COVID-19 restrictions.

We hope you enjoy our activity packs, and if you do use them, please tag us with #BSW21 on Twitter so that we can see your amazing activities in action!

Move your way!

Sport Relief - Primary School childrenWe’re so excited to let you know about a brand new activity pack that has been produced by our friends at Sport Relief in partnership with Explorify too. Packed full with inspirational science and PE activities, the resource has been developed to help your students get the most out of both Sport Relief and British Science Week.

You can download the pack from Sport Relief’s website.


We love seeing how you use the activity packs, so please share your pictures with us on Twitter using #BSW21.



Many of the activities are CREST accredited, 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.

Find out more about CREST Awards here.
