British Science Week celebrated at school
You have 30 strands of spaghetti and 20 Jelly Babies to build the highest tower. How will you structure your tower so that it does not crumble under its own weight?
These were the kind of science challenges that we organised for our pupils as part of British Science Week. Other tasks included building the strongest bridge using lolly sticks and creating an egg-protection device meant to prevent an egg from cracking when dropped from a height. We can’t help but wonder what fun activities our science teachers will come up with for next year!
British Science Week, run by the British Science Association, is a ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths, featuring entertaining and engaging events and activities across the UK for people of all ages.
