A massive thank you to all the brilliant people who were involved in this year’s Virtual British Science Week.

Schools from 17 counties registered to receive the activities pack and/or took part in the daily live Q&A sessions. More than 5500 hits to the landing pages too - we had a STEM of a time launching content on 5 topics over 5 days.

Working in collaboration with our industry and academic partners, short informative videos were produced to introduce students to each of the topics we covered. The live Q&A sessions were well supported, with plenty of questions streaming in. We also had some wonderful feedback flowing in during the week too:

“I liked the breadth of resources to cover the range of STEM.”
“Having online content available that could be used flexibly to fit around my school timetable was helpful.”
“I used the STEM in Action:Robotics content over 2 x 100-minute lessons with 33 Year 8 students.”
“I would like to thank you for the outstanding resources you provided for Science week!”
“They were brilliant! We have some activities to complete, I look forward to sharing the rest of the materials with my class next week!”
“The children liked hearing their questions being answered.”

The content is still available - why not take a look yourself to expand your own knowledge or introduce yourself to any of the themes:
