The theme for the 2020 activity packs is ‘Our diverse planet’
We are pleased to announce that the theme for the British Science Week 2020 Activity Packs and Poster Competition is ‘Our diverse planet’. Our activity packs will contain lots of activities on this theme, with anything from biological diversity and social diversity, to the diversity of knowledge and STEM careers. There are lots of ways to explore this theme, and we’re very excited to work on what will certainly be another incredibly exciting British Science Week!
The packs for 2020 are currently in development. The three packs: Early years, Primary and Secondary, will all be available to download from this page.
Taster versions available to download from early November 2019
Full versions available to download from early January 2020
In the meantime, last year’s packs are still available to download and use.
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.

Fun, Family Science
If you’re looking for activities you can run at home, check out our Fun, Family Science packs created in partnership with Eurotunnel!
The downloadable activities feature crosswords, colour by numbers sheets and an array of fascinating facts. Check them out below!
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.
