Videos, lesson plans and more: National Science Week is just around the corner!

Engineering, maths, design, art? What is the missing link that brings them all together to create the wonderful world we live in? Science!

National Science Week runs from the 15th to the 23rd of August and is all about exploring the science of our everyday lives. 

Deep Blue: innovations for the future of our oceans.

The theme this year poses some of the most critical questions of our era: how can we use innovative technologies, capabilities and skills needed to achieve the economic, environmental and social sustainability of our oceans? National Science Week tackles these questions and more!

Explore the deep sea with EnhanceTV’s National Science Week Collection.

Get your deep exploration hat on. This collection is all about the largest creature to ever live, the ocean! National Science Week is all about the wonders of the ocean and learning about the advanced technologies that have been developed to help clean it up!

The National Science Week collection is accompanied by lesson plans and teaching resources to support you and your students this National Science Week.

What’s the link between science and creativity? Find out more about the connection between Science and Creativity with Scope! 

Can we get scientific with creativity and creative with science? We sure can! Discover with your students the interrelationship between science and creativity and how one domain influences the other with science experts from Scope. 

Bring science to life in your classroom with EnhanceTV DIY clips. 

One of the best ways to explore the wonders of everyday science is through learning by doing. Explore our range of DIY science experiments that can be done in the classroom, and get students asking the bigger questions about everyday things we often overlook, but which hold some of science’s greatest secrets! 

From making a hologram to exploring biodiversity through creating a DIY terrarium, our collection is filled with fun, curriculum-linked experiments you can use in your classroom.  

DIY terrarium: help your students to understand how biodiversity works by getting them to create their very own ecosystem. 

Make your own plant fertiliser: follow this clip for three recipes using molasses, epsom salts, eggshells and coffee grounds!

This DIY experiment explores the miraculous world of fungi! From mushrooms to mould. How do fungi grow? Let’s find out! 

DIY Hologram!

Get your students mastering the science of holography with the help of junior scientist, Brittany. Making holograms or 3D images is much easier than you think. All you need is a smartphone, a pen, a sheet of clear plastic, scissors, clear tape, graph paper and a ruler.

DIY activities are founded in discovery learning principles while fostering student-centred learning opportunities.  As students complete the DIY Science activities, they construct their own understanding and knowledge of fundamental scientific principles, while exploring the science of our everyday lives. 

Experimenting is a key component to discovery learning, as well as the reflective process that engages students in thinking about how they got certain results. 

Curriculum-linked science activities

Discover engaging curriculum-linked science activities created by other schools who have participated in National Science Week. From holding your very own school science week to a bridge-building competition (Years 4-7). The list is filled with practical and engaging ideas to engage students across all grades in science!
