What is the Great Science Share for Schools?
The Great Science Share for Schools is an annual campaign to inspire young people to share scientific investigations based on a question they are interested in with new audiences. Established in 2016, the Great Science Share has reached over 50,000 students around the UK. Entering its fourth year, the Great Science Share is continuing to grow, with schools, parents, organisations and STEM colleagues from all around the country getting involved to encourage local children to share their scientific question.
