The Great Science Share for Schools, 16 June

/var/folders/hz/9v94jn5n13l_s8p6qm2qn2zh0000gn/T/com.microsoft.Word/Content.MSO/80CDEDD2.tmpThe Great Science Share for Schools is about children communicating something that they have been investigating which starts with a question that they are interested in. Already having reached over 100,000 young people since its launch in 2016, schools in Wales are invited to be part of the collaborative 2020 campaign.

No boundaries: Pupils, teachers, parents/carers, businesses and educators UK-wide, across Europe and internationally can take part. By promoting child-centred learning in science, the campaign gives young people a great chance to communicate their scientific questions and investigations to new audiences - in their own words and ways. 

Improve young people’s experience of science and engineering: 3 simple values provide the foundations to all campaign activity.

  • CHILD-FOCUSED SCIENCE COMMUNICATION
  • INCLUSIVE AND NON-COMPETITIVE
  • PROMOTES COLLABORATION
