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.
If you’ve already done it or are about to but not registered please do so!
If you are attending a local event in your region, you must register directly with the event organiser. This form is for the GSSfS campaign team to monitor national uptake.
All events are by invitation only from the event organiser. The Great Science Share for Schools, The University of Manchester and affiliated partners and sponsors encourage you to be involved and create many events. Event organisers accept full responsibility and liability for their own events.
