A competition to encourage creative science through pupil-led investigations
We believe that giving pupils more ownership of their science investigations can really engage and motivate them. It enables them to see science as something genuinely creative and exploratory and this can help with effective teaching and learning of ‘working scientifically’.
Pupils, of any year group, work in small teams on the science investigation of their choice – it can be as part of a school science week, science club, science lesson or even as a homework project. Investigations might involve any combination of surveys, fair test comparisons, research or data collection over a longer period of time.
The competition culminates in an exciting Finals Day where pupils present their projects as part of a day of interactive science activities.
We have been running the Big Science Event since 2010 and can provide support to schools and teachers, including a twilight CPD session (free for Member Schools) to provide practical ideas and techniques for managing the process of pupil-led investigation.
