Here you can find educational, inspirational and fun resources for your family to enjoy at home, from weekly Curiosity Challenges and DIY science videos to spectacular science demonstrations and fun and fascinating facts!

Our aim is to get families learning and laughing together, with activities that will enable children to build their science inquiry skills – to think creatively, design, build, test, ask questions, research and evaluate – just like STEM professionals!

You'll be able to find all this here on our website or via our Facebook page.
