Demo Day is an annual campaign during British Science Week that aims to inspire secondary school teachers and technicians to explore new concepts, provoke discussions and generate excitement through running science demonstrations. It has run successfully for the last two years in hundreds of schools across the UK.

For British Science Week 2016, Demo Day falls on Thursday 17 March!

Demo Day has run successfully for the last two years in hundreds of schools across the UK. In 2016, we want to encourage even more schools to get involved – both those who run in-class demos often, or who have taken part in Demo Day before, and those schools who are less familiar with demonstrations. There are plenty of resources available (see below) to give teachers and technicians ideas, inspiration and confidence to run demos with students.

Pledge to run a demo

Once again, we will be asking teachers and technicians who are planning to run a demonstration on Demo Day, to pledge via the British Science Week website. Your pledge will be added to our interactive map which will display all the pledges from participating schools across the UK.

Share your ideas

If you've taken part in Demo Day before and are keen to do so again, why not help spread the word and share your ideas about what worked well for your class or school group?  Tweet @ScienceWeekUK using the hashtag, #DemoDay16 and inspire others to get involved.
