The Great Science Share on 6th July 2016 will be a day for young people to enjoy sharing science. It is part of the European City of Science programme of activities which aim to inspire and engage children and the public with science in the world around them.
This is an open invitation to be really creative, teachers and schools have complete flexibility about how they plan their day and activities on the 6th July. If you’re looking for ideas, activities could include: science themed assemblies, presenting an experiment or prototype, science circus, science fairs led by young people, a big science busk, maker day, science poster parade or a science dance off.
First steps first – please visit http://manchestersciencecity.com/gss/and click on ‘Join In’ where you will be able to register your involvement and also download a branding pack to support you with telling others about the day. If you have any ideas that you’d like us to include on the ‘Inspire’ pages that would also be welcomed.
We hope that you will support the Great Science Share and we very much hope that you see this as a prime opportunity to collaborate or connect with others. If you’re not a science teacher you might consider how your subject can embrace science in some way – creative approaches are very very welcome! It really is up to you.
Key to it all is that young people are at the heart of it and that they enjoy sharing science with others!
There is a bespoke Great Science Song that has been written for us by the Halle Education – called ‘Science Should be Something We Share’. Download the music and hear this in the GSS project page at www.fascinate.manchester.ac.uk/projects. Bring your school alive with song on the day!
