Did you know you can download a FREE special issue of Primary Science from The Association for Science Education ?

The issue features great projects which encourage children to 'tinker' and how this can improve outcomes for the whole school. It's definitely worth a read. #PrimaryScience #ASE

Making science fun for kids
Introduction

Here at Science Sparks we are passionate about making science fun for kids. All our activities are easy to do and use only equipment and materials commonly found around the home. Science for kids doesn’t have to be complicated and boring, it can be great fun for both children and adults.

Science based activities offer endless creative learning opportunities and are a great way to spend time with your children. We’ve had some of our best chats while drawing on filter paper and making patterns in milk.

Science activities can also be fantastic for inspiring reluctant readers or children who like to be very hands on with their learning. Children are naturally curious and science activities are a great way to help them explore the world around them. Learning how to think logically and follow a scientific process has huge benefits to children as they grow up, helping them to plan, communicate, work creatively, solve problems and much more.

We have such a great time coming up with new ideas, we hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
