BBC Terrific Scientific - Investigation Question

This year the Great Science Share for Schools has the honour of partnering with the national BBC Terrific Scientific campaign.

Terrific Scientific is an ambitious campaign from the BBC. Their goal is to inspire primary school pupils to discover their inner scientist.

Their approach has been to partner with leading universities to create a series of child-friendly nationwide scientific investigations, and the campaign will culminates this summer with Investigation - Question.
