Here’s 4 ways to get your kids involved
Let’s celebrate science, technology engineering and maths (STEM) from the 10-19 March! The British Science Association is coordinating hundreds of events across the UK with activities, competitions and ways for you to get involved. This year’s theme is all about ‘change’, encouraging children to learn about the changes in the world around us that can have a positive or negative impact on the future. This includes changes in climate, seasons, energy and materials.
What a great opportunity to get your children connected with science at home and with the family. Here are few ideas we think are absolutely stellar!
1. Attend an event
Find a science event near you during British Science Week. From building a roaring rockets to experiments based on Roald Dahl’s book George’s Marvelous Medicine at Waterstones and slap stick science silent show there’s bound to be an event for everyone!
2. Do a science demo
Whether it’s science in the kitchen or garden, we love a bit of home experimenting! Here’s a couple of our favourites. Why not try these at home?
