Science is a social and creative endeavour.
As a new school year starts, we look forward to welcoming our school and educational visitors again after the summer break.
See our Enterprising Science project video animation on the science capital approach to understanding science engagement.
When you feel connected, excited or passionate about something you have experienced or discovered, you want to share and talk about it with other people.
‘Not for me’.
From exhibitions on contemporary science to periodic table tea towels in the gift shop, museums and science centres are brimming with science content.
With amazing authentic objects, cutting edge science stories and hands on experiences, museums and science centres are a rich learning resource that spark curiosity and show how science has transformed all our lives.
Science, technology, engineering and maths achieve incredible things, it can be exciting, awe inspiring, even entertaining and fun, but that doesn’t mean that everyone will automatically make a personal connection with it or feel that it is something for them.
