British Science Week

British Science Week is a UK wide programme that runs for 10 days in March every year. Up and down the country there are countless events being run; all with the aim of helping to celebrate and introduce people into STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Economics & Mathematics).

To take a look at their fantastic website; click here.

British Science Week Activities

Science can be one of the single most fun and engaging subjects to learn about; whether at home or in the classroom. And with this in mind, the BSA has got you covered on both fronts, providing you with a whole host of activities to participate in.

The BSA has been hard at work to bring fresh content each year that British Science Week has taken place and this year is no exception, helpfully separating the activities into both EYFS and KS1 & 2.

Click here to have a look at what they have to offer.

Alongside these activities, they also wrote an amazing blog and activity guide about “Smashing Stereotypes” in the STEM community. I highly recommend having a read of it right here.


A company by the name of Kiwico has designed monthly boxes full of STEM goodness. They are a subscription service that each month provides 2 globally inspired projects for people of all ages to build.

They have it separated into age groups of 0-8, 9-13, and 14+. They have a massive range of over 1000 individual projects. They have projects on Science, Art & Design, Geography as well as projects specifically for Early Learning.

Their UK site can be found here, and they even offer bulk shipping for schools and classrooms.


YouTube has a very exhaustive list of YouTube videos all about science activities that can be done in the classroom.

I’ve picked out just a handful of videos that I think have some really cool looking science experiments.

We here at Teacher’s Pet have a whole plethora of amazing resources all around the subject of science. Make sure to take a look at all of our Science Resources for both KS1 & KS2.

Below I have picked out a handful of resources in order to get started.

We hope these ideas have given you some inspiration for how to take part during British Science Week.
