The Great Science Share for Schools reaches right across the UK and beyond, including schools in Brazil, Nigeria, India and Korea.

Satellite events are hosted in schools, museums, gardens or STEM organisations and all have one thing in common - they keep campaign ethos of being child-led, inclusive and collaborative.

There are no registration fees to take part and events so far have mostly been led by teachers in primary and secondary settings. Events generally last from 1 hour to 4 hours and could be an assembly, whole school science fair or day, science happening in all classroom spaces at some point during the day or week.

All involve pupils sharing their science questions and investigations with each other!

 

Your event can support you to:

  • encourage children to ask and explore their own scientific questions

  • recognise the value of talking about and demonstrating science to others

  • develop teacher confidence in teaching working scientifically

  • encourage teacher collaboration to develop professional experience

  • make connections with scientists and engineers in your locality

    For more information and guidance about what an event looks like download the GSSfS ABC Guide to running events.
