As British Science Week approaches, Discovery Education – the worldwide edtech leader whose state-of-the-art digital platform supports learning wherever it takes place – is providing primary schools with dynamic digital resources to make STEM learning fun.
Taking place from 10 – 19 March, British Science Week is an annual celebration of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. The theme of this year’s event is Connections and the Discovery Education resources will provide fun and engaging ways to introduce this topic to young learners.
Available via the award-winning digital learning service Discovery Education Espresso, the resources have been specially curated to help schools mark British Science Week and ignite student curiosity in STEM. From exploring space, natural habitats, materials and the weather to getting hands on with real-life science experiments, the curriculum-matched content will cover a wide range of topics.
Suitable for students from Foundation to KS2, the British Science Week resources will provide teachers with lesson plans, videos and activities to bring STEM learning to life.
The resources include:
- Becoming an Astronaut : A glimpse inside the European Space Agency, looking at life in space and how to become an astronaut
- Women in Science: A special report with leading British Scientists, including planetary scientist Suzie Imber
- Game Design : An exciting hands-on activity, challenging pupils to design and make their own circuit game
Howard Lewis, Discovery Education’s UK and International Managing Director said:
“Discovery Education is proud to support British Science Week by providing teachers with engaging resources to bring STEM learning to life. Today’s students are tomorrow’s innovators, so it’s important that we ignite their curiosity at a young age and make hands-on science fun!”
