Eadon celebrates British Science Week
Some of the Eadon team have been celebrating British Science Week (BSW) this week by taking part in science-based activities with their children.
The event is a celebration of all things STEM and takes place this year from 11th to 20th March. The aim of BSW is to engage children of all ages and to demonstrate how science links with other school subjects and has fascinating real-world applications.
Ralph celebrated with a trip to the the National Space Centre in Leicester where he learnt all about the universe and what it’s like to be an astronaut. He especially enjoyed having a go at driving a model Mars rover!
Ruby wants to be a surgeon when she’s older and has been getting a head start on her career by reading all about the human body. She enjoyed making a poster demonstrating the digestive system!
Dr Sally Moomaw, Professor of Early Childhood Education, said: “STEM disciplines provides a pathway for children to explore a wide range of exciting areas in science, maths, and engineering.
“Almost everything young children do involves exploring their world.
“Children who engage in science and maths regularly develop circuits to make learning in these areas faster and easier.”1
British Science Week is coordinated by the British Science Association and is funded by the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI). Free activity packs for anybody wanting ideas about how to get involved are available to download from the British Science Week website here.
