British Science Week: primary activity pack (2022)

This activity pack provides a range of activities that promote cross-curricular learning, so that STEM can be linked to other curriculum subjects and to children's own backgrounds, lives and interests.  It has been designed for British Science Week 2022 on the theme of 'Growth'.

The activities included in the pack can be completed in any setting such as a school, club or at home.

They include:

  • looking at trees as habitats
  • investigating what plants need to grow
  • antibody and virus origami
  • designing an animal that could survive on Mars

The packs also give advice on:

  • how to introduce the theme of 'Growth' to children
  • how to take part in British Science week from home
  • how to introduce transferable skills used in STEM-related jobs to children
  • how to engage external volunteers
  • how to extend the science learning beyond the activities.

More details about British Science Week can be found on their website.
