ScienceWorks is designed to excite, educate and stimulate interest in science using hands-on experiments. It is run by Science Projects, a not for profit charity specialising in producing interactive exhibitions. They deliver ScienceWorks exhibitions to schools in support of the science curriculum and provide a cost effective and engaging service for Key stages 1, 2 & 3, Special schools, Teachers and INSET.
“I wanted to say how much we enjoyed the ElectricityWorks exhibition this week. The children thoroughly enjoyed exploring the experiments. Your professionalism and excellent communication was very much appreciated. I will most certainly be recommending your services to other Science co-ordinators.” Mary Evans, Science Co-ordinator, NW London Jewish Day School
Each exhibition consists of a set of portable interactive tabletop exhibits. There are six separate exhibitions covering Light, Electricity, Sound, Forces, Life and Materials with each containing twelve hands-on exhibits focusing on the National Curriculum Science programmes of study at key stages 1, 2 & 3. Each exhibition is designed to fit within a classroom and comes with a full set of detailed Teachers’ Notes.
Many schools organise sessions for infant classes and treat the exhibition as a whole school event. Secondary schools may host an exhibition in conjunction with their feeder primary and middle schools. This promotes good school links and an opportunity to share ideas. It is also excellent PR for the host school. The exhibitions can also be used to raise money as part of a fund-raising event in the school.
