Great Science Share for Schools



19th June 2018

A national campaign to engage young people in sharing science learning with new audiences

Reaching 10,000 children last year, we are excited to see the power of collaboration this year. Already with over 3 times as many pupils registered to take part - we invite each and every teacher, school and pupil to get involved and encourage STEM Education organisations and business partners to join in! 

Will you share science on the 19th June? Read the FAQs to give you key information and advice, and/or this article by SEERIH Teacher Champion, Shane Nolan, from Christ the King RC Primary School, Salford.

To register your interest to participate where you can download free resources and guidance for the campaign!

Remember you don't have to be in Greater Manchester - this year we've gone national!

This year the Great Science Share for Schools is gaining further momentum by working in partnership with BBC Terrific Scientific.  You can access further information about the 10th Investigation 'Question' and also download teacher guidance resources on children's scientific questions from May 2018. Watch this video to introduce the Investigation!

We are delighted to be the academic partner with the BBC on this investigation.

Watch what happened last year!


The Great Science Share for Schools has been designed and developed by the Science & Engineering Education Research and Innovation Hub. With the first children's conference in 2013 at Grenoside Primary School in Sheffield, the concept has grown to what it is today. Now operating at a national level we look to engage with new collaborators and to see how far and wide we can encourage young people to share their science with new audiences... who knows, one day even globally!
