The theme for the 2022 activity packs is ‘Growth’

The theme for the British Science Week 2022 activity packs and poster competition is ‘Growth’, and we are very excited to represent sneak-peak taster packs, which have been created in partnership with UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).

The taster packs include information on how to plan for British Science Week, such as how to get your pupils and students excited about the theme and how to involve volunteers. There are also two activities in each pack on the theme of ‘Growth’, from learning how plants grow, to career development!

Our full activity packs, which will contain loads more activities on this theme, will be published in January ahead of the Week in March and will be available all year round.

We hope you enjoy our taster activity packs, and if you do use them, please tag us with #BSW22 on @ScienceWeekUK  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.
