Science Activities To Do At Home

Crest Awards are managed by the British Science Association. They have produced packs containing experiments that can be done at home with varying levels of adult support. They cover all areas of the science curriculum from Year 1 to Year 6. There are two packs available, "Sta Challenges" (5-7 years) and "SuperStar Challenges" (7-11 years). Unfortunately, these packs are too large to upload to our website, so the link to where they can be found is below:
