British Science Week at R.E.A.L.

R.E.A.L. Education marked British Science Week 2019 (8th – 17th March) with a bang!

Courtesy of R.E.A.L.’s Science Lead, Rabia Masud, hubs across R.E.A.L. Education all received a special science box – full of equipment, ingredients and practical science ideas to inspire teachers and their learners.

The theme for this year’s British Science Week was transport. From building and racing model cars to film canister rockets, flowers and food dye, DNA made out of sweets, to making hair stand on ends with the Van de Graaf generator there was something for every subject.

Rabia said: “I am passionate about incorporating as much practical science into our sessions as possible. Whether it’s a session at home or in a hub there is something for everyone! The start of British Science Week also coincided with International Women’s week creating an opportunity to research famous female scientists.

“We’ve seen some fantastic engagement with the science boxes with both staff and learners. Due to popular demand next term we have visits planned from Nottinghamshire Blood Bikes and a ‘Rocket Man!’”
