Practical activities to support learning science at home or at school.

Science Fun at Home provides simple and engaging practical science activities. Originally created to support learning at home, the activities are equally useful for learning at school. The activities are open ended and adaptable for any age.


Each two-page sheet has activities that are:

  • clear and simple, using household resources
  • accessible and manageable for all
  • fun for children and their families to do
  • linked to follow up activities


The Science Fun at Home resources were created by Ali Eley (Outreach Director) and Tom Holloway (Regional Mentor) working with Science Sparks.
