British Science Week - Teaching Resources

British Science Week is a ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths which will take place 11-20 March 2022.

The 2022 theme is growth. From exploring plant growth in a window box to discussing the impacts of economic growth on our society, there are plenty of ways to join in with your class.

Below you will find links to our best science, technology, engineering and maths resources for primary and secondary schools - all in one place.

You can also download a free British Science Week activity pack, which aims to provide simple, hands-on science activities which teachers and parents can use with students and children during British Science Week.
