63,614 young people in 2019 over 100,000 young people so far - Will you be involved this year?

Be inspired by the new promotional film.

The national campaign to inspire young people in science and engineering. 

The Great Science Share for Schools is about children communicating something that they have been investigating which starts with a question that they are interested in. Already having reached over 100,000 young people since its launch in 2016, we are excited to invite you to be part of the collaborative 2019 campaign.

No boundaries: Pupils, teachers, parents/carers, businesses and educators UK-wide, across Europe and internationally can take part. By promoting child-centred learning in science, the campaign gives young people a great chance to communicate their scientific questions and investigations to new audiences - in their own words and ways.

Improve young people’s experience of science and engineering: 3 simple values provide the foundations to all campaign activity.
