Science at home

The Royal Society supports teachers during this challenging time and has collated a number of resources, activities and videos, that they may wish to share with parents, to support learning from home. It is important that parents follow the guidance from teaching staff and recognise that they are not expected to replace their expertise; it may be helpful for parents to set goals for their children to reach, create routines and, for younger children, focus on promoting reading and numeracy skills in particular. 

These resources are free to download or view and no sign-up is required. Many of the links are to lectures and videos that students may want to take their time to explore - providing additional learning on current issues around science, mathematics and computing.

We have also included links to other resource sites including STEM learning, the Association for Science Education, and the Primary Science Teaching Trust. 

Explore our YouTube playlist to see some of the videos available, or find more resources on our Primary, Secondary and Extended learning pages.

Teachers may also be interested in Summer Science Online taking place between 13 – 17 July 2020. Join us for a week of science at home, with talks, videos and highlights from previous exhibitions and our extensive archives.
