National Science & Engineering Week
British Science Association has developed a series of free resources and activities for event organisers and schools to help you put on your science, engineering or technology events and activities during National Science & Engineering Week. New resources are added every year. They are popular with schools, parents and a range of other organisations, who use them to get ideas on engaging and affordable hands on activities.
Free packs full of science and engineering hands-on activities and projects are produced each year for National Science & Engineering Week, and are available to download all year round. We offer over 300 easy-to-run activities suitable for at home or school. Activities are curriculum-linked with teachers/organiser notes. Our activity packs are designed to be carried out at minimal cost using items you would find in your average school or educational establishment (or even from your kitchen cupboard). For the kids they will be hands-on, fun, and we hope will have a wow factor! Each activity pack is themed.
Some but not all activities within the packs are accredited to the CREST Star scheme; accredited activities display the CREST Star logo.
