This unit introduces science clubs and the benefits of running a science club.

It aims to give teachers ideas on how science clubs can be run successfully in a number of different ways and how a typical science club session is run. This unit also provides example activities and places that you can go for ideas and help.

All Continuing Professional Development Units are created and written by education professionals who have given their time and expertise to the project.
