This March/April 2018 issue has the theme of 'Hidden Science': looking at life and opportunities through a lens that allows you to find science wherever you look. Through reading some of the ideas presented in this issue, teachers may be encouraged to rethink their view of what they already have to hand: Is there a story that has science within it? Is there a TV clip that captures a moment that may generate questions? Is there an area near the school that could be a springboard for thinking about materials?
