Key Stage 2

Explore Your Universe

This exciting, curriculum focused workshop uses cutting-edge research by the Science and Technology Facilities Council to help students explore new topics and broaden existing knowledge in science. Using a range of intriguing equipment not usually available to schools, it will allow students to deepen their understanding of fundamental topics such as magnets and fields, electrons and charge and how we observe our Universe.

Through exciting demonstrations and hands-on activities, this workshop will inspire pupils aged 10-13 with the astounding work of UK scientists and engineers.

EYU Workshop Feedback
The KS2 workshop scored very highly with a recent group. Here are the pupil comments: "It's great fun and will put a smile on your face!" "This will help with science because sometimes we don't do practical things (at school)". "The workshop was fun, practical and there are loads of things to do". "I would recommend it because it taught us how to see the real colour of light"
