Encourage your children to take part in the 2020 Great Science Share
11 May 2020
Share scientific questions across social media and win prizes for schools
Primary and secondary school-aged children are being encouraged to share their scientific questions across social media, then support each other with investigations and experiments to answer the questions.
It’s a unique opportunity for children to work together, get curious, explore, be hands-on and share their findings across the internet.
Encompassing five engaging weekly themes, the campaign began on 4 May, 2020 and the opportunity to share questions and investigations begins on 16 June. It will encompass topics ranging from space to waste, and oceans to wildlife. Each theme has a range of free resources to try, inspire and explore,
How will the share happen?
Of course, it’ll all be virtual this year; sharing is encouraged via Twitter, Facebook and the Great Science Share website, children can take a science selfie, share a photo of an investigation, make a video, draw a picture or write a report. All children that sign up will receive a certificate, science factsheets and incentives and prizes for their school.
Dr Helen Mason OBE, Retired Reader in Solar Physics, from the University of Cambridge says: “Science is exciting and is all about asking questions, and trying to answer them as best we can. The Great Science Share encourages this, developing curiosity and enthusiasm for science.”
