In 2018 the Great Science Share for Schools reached right across the UK and beyond. Satellite events which maintained the campaign ethos of child-led, inclusive and collaborative, were hosted in schools and STEM organisations. There is no registration costs to be involved in the campaign. Most events are led by teachers, and involve primary and secondary pupils share their science questions and investigations. Events generally lasted an afternoon, but could be anything from a 1-hour pupil-led assembly to a whole school science fair or day.

In total 251 schools led their own science share events as well as another 282 who were involved in larger registered events.


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.
