Science – not just for scientists

Cover of 365 More Simple Science ExperimentsScience is fun. Science is cool. Science is everywhere. Science is at your library.

Science Alive are free drop-in science sessions from 3:30pm – 4:30pm at your local library. This is an after school science programme presented by Science Alive. Excellent Science Alive educators lead children through interactive activities to stimulate their interest in science, and there is something to take home every week.

If you can’t wait for the next Science Alive session, we have a great collections of books and eResources that have science experiments and activities you can do at home.

At Science Alive, I have learnt that insects are very good at hiding. In buildings, triangles are stronger than squares. Some crystals are huge. Paper gliders can fly a long way if you make them properly. What have you learnt?

Programmes run during term time except the first week and no bookings are required.
