Education in science and mathematics should develop the natural intellectual curiosity and creativity of young people. Creative and experimental approaches will be particularly important for keeping students interested and engaged in science, and for equipping them well for the future, whether or not they pursue a career in science. To support this activity in primary schools, Brian Cox, the Society's Professor for Public Engagement in Science, presents a series of video resources to increase teachers' confidence with experimental science and relate the experiments to the real world.
The resources support six experiments across the primary science curriculum, and each written resource is supported by four videos:
The experiments used are all related to curriculum topics and are simple to carry out. The equipment needed is basic, and readily available from local supermarkets. They are tried and tested activities, used by teachers across the UK.
All videos have been filmed and produced by BBC Studios.
