Great Science Share 2019

great science share

The Great Science Share is an excellent platform from which pupils are encouraged to use the scientific method to investigate their own STEM themed questions.  This year, there are 13 bursaries available to schools.

Last year, over 40,500 young people shared their scientific questions with new audiences, reaching schools across the whole of the UK! If you would like a look at what happened in some of those satellite events, watch the film here.

Don’t miss your chance to be involved!
