Meet the engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel: the video will be available at 11.00 on Tuesday 2nd June

A big thank you to those of you who sent in such interesting questions and fabulous drawings for Brunel. Maybe you will spot yours in the video?! You can still download the activity sheet to find out more about the life and work of Isambard Kingdom Brunel (1806 – 1859).

Please note that there will be no video released in half term week.

You can still learn about all of the past and present scientists we have met so far by downloading their activity sheets and watching their videos below.

The Primary Science Teaching Trust is working with Spectrum Drama and St. Mary's University to create opportunities to meet past and present scientists and to learn more about people who do jobs that use science.

Science at Work consists of weekly activity sheets about scientists and people who work in a science-related job. Children are encouraged to send in their questions to the scientist who will answer as many as they can in a video released the following week. Videos can be viewed through Primary Science Teaching Trust’s Facebook page. NB: if you are unable to access Facebook, you can view the video here.

Key things you need to do to take part…..

  • Every Tuesday we will release an activity sheet – these can be downloaded from this page or sent straight to your inbox by signing up to our mailing list.
  • Click on the SEND US YOUR QUESTION tab below and complete the form to submit your child's question and/or upload their drawing by 3pm on Thursday the same week.
  • Click attending on the Facebook event.
