Activity packs

Our 2019 activity packs are themed around ‘journeys.’ Find out more here

The theme for the 2019 activity packs is ‘journeys’

Themed around ‘journeys’, our activity packs provide easy-to-do, hands-on activities that parents and teachers can easily run with their students and children. From creating tunnels, time capsules and perfume to keeping a nature log and mummifying an orange, there’s something for everyone.

Whether you’re a parent looking for fun and easy science activities to try at home – from scientific experiments to nature trails to making a time capsule – or a teacher trying to organise your lesson plans for the year ahead, the resources are educational, fun and can be adapted to your needs.

We love seeing how you use the activity packs so please share your pictures with us on Twitter using the hashtag #BSW19

CREST

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.

 

Other ways to take part in British Science Week

Don’t forget, there’s other ways to engage your class with British Science Week such as participating in our citizen science project with Operation Weather Rescue! Why not take 15 minutes each day to allow your class to help us digitise old weather records? The data will help researchers better understand past weather patterns and predict future climate change.

Another great way to get your class engaged is to take the classroom outside for a lesson.  Our 5k Run with the Ancestors race, which scales down 500k years of Britain’s history, is a perfect way to keep everyone’s minds and feet moving.
