Full details

The Great Science Share for Schools is about children communicating a scientific investigation based on a question they are interested in. In the past these have included:

  1. 'Which mixture makes bubbles last longest?'
  2. 'How does the size of the balloon rocket affect the time it takes to travel along the string?'
  3. 'What is poo?'

If you’re a teacher, school, parent or STEM educator or business looking to enhance young people’s experience of science and their Science Capital, you can get involved in this years campaign.

The Great Science Share for Schools was founded on the ethos of supporting:

  • Child-led communication to new audiences
  • Inclusive and non-competitive
  • Promoting collaboration
