Explore the future

This activity pack, aimed at 5-11-year-olds, contains a range of different activities based on the theme “Explore the future” for National Science & Engineering Week 2014.

The pack has been designed to provide easy-to-do activities that are fun and engaging, and will hopefully generate a “wow factor” amongst pupils. They can be used in both formal and informal places of learning to complement and enrich the curriculum.

Activities 1-12 are short and simple, using resources that can be sourced cheaply and easily. They could form a central part of a school’s activity week, or they could be used as extra activities to support existing schemes of work. Although activities 1-12 can be completed independently or in small groups, a further activity is included which is designed specifically to provide a group challenge.
