Activity packs

The 2020 activity packs were themed around 'Our diverse planet'

The theme for the 2021 activity packs will be ‘Innovating for the future’

The theme for the British Science Week 2021 activity packs and poster competition will be ‘Innovating for the future.’ Our packs will contain lots of activities on this theme, and will be released in January 2021 for you to download from this page. Taster versions of the packs with tips to help you organise events and activities for British Science Week will be available in November.

The theme for the British Science Week 2020 activity packs and poster competition was ‘Our diverse planet.’ Even though the week is over, our packs contain lots of activities on this theme, with anything from biological diversity and social diversity, to the diversity of knowledge and STEM careers.

We love seeing how you use the activity packs so please share your pictures with us on Twitter using #BSW20.

 

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.
