British Science Week

Coming March 2024

Enjoy a unique school trip at Life!

Students can have the time of their lives and gear up to test their science skills as part of a series of workshops celebrating British Science Week 2024.

The 2024 theme is Time, and linked to that, students can work against the clock to escape from impending doom, capture time by creating a clock and investigate a time-efficient way to transport ‘watermelons’!

It’s time to Think, Innovate, Make and Enjoy – for the whole month of March 2024!

School workshops

There are three time-ly workshops to choose from, each lasting 30 minutes and all workshops include an extra Time Capsule activity (also 30 minutes long). These will replace our usual KS1-KS3 workshops in March. KS4 workshops are available as usual.

Clock gears

Ages 7+

Running like clockwork

Make everything run like clockwork by examining how gears move and link together and then put that knowledge to the test by becoming a clockmaker and making an analogue clock.

All ages

Every second counts

Students can delve into their design skills as they create a transport run to move marble ‘watermelons’ from a field to a storage box, as safely and efficiently as possible...but beware…every second counts!
