“Science in a Suitcase” brings the science centre to your school !
It provides hands on experiments and activities that are suitable for a wide age range – from Reception, KS 1 to KS 3.
The exhibits are accessible at some level to everyone regardless of age, ability, experience or gender. The hands on style ensure the exhibits attract, engage and extend - everyone has the opportunity to participate.
The hands on exhibits and activities are designed to enhance and complement the science curriculum.
They support scientific enquiry – children are encouraged:
to observe – to look for patterns, to look for the unusual
to estimate – to recognise changes
to formulate their own ideas - to make predictions
to communicate – to discuss their ideas with their friends
to engage in the same activities as some of the great scientists – to combine creative thinking and experimental evidence
