The activities focus on a mixture of practical activities and discussion, and encourage children to work independently of adults. They are designed to be used primarily outside of lessons and you don’t need a science background to run them, as full notes are provided as part of the resources. Although designed for non-curricular learning, some activities may be suitable for the classroom.
