Great Science Share 16 June 2020


The Great Science Share for Schools is an annual campaign to inspire young people to share their scientific questions with new audiences.

The Great Science Share for Schools is about children communicating a scientific investigation based on a question they are interested in.

If you’re a teacher, school, parent or STEM educator or business looking to enhance young people’s experience of science and their Science Capital, you can get involved in this years campaign.


Want to take part in the Great Science Share for Schools 2020?

  • Step 1: Register via Eventbrite
  • Step 2: Download campaign resources
  • Step 3: Save the date so you can be part of the campaign day of 16th June 2020
  • Step 4: Talk to your pupils about the questions that interest them to investigate and share this with the Great Science Share team (they are always on hand to provide advice or support)
  • Step 5: Invite someone else to join you in your planning – GSSfS is a collaborative campaign and works best when you share the experience with others

How young people can get involved:

  1. Weekly Themes will go live from Monday 4th May 2020 for young people to explore. Get curious using brand new GSS Question Makers, talk to others and share!
  2. Great Science Groove-along is a creative way to share science. Young people will have until 4th June to create a short film of themselves and their family sharing science through movement and song.
  3. Extra resources provide great ways to investigate and explore the weekly themes a bit more. It’s up to you how much you do!
  4. 16th June 2020 Great Science Share – a great day for young people to share science they love – it can be something they’ve done before in school or at home, something they’ve watched or something new they do on the day!

Share it!

Young people can share their favourite questions and investigations via the 2020 Great Science Share gallery, using the GSS Upload, Twitter @GreatSciShare or Facebook @GreatSciShare4Schools**
