British Science Week
British Science Week 2021 was a blast and we’ll be back with more in 2022.
Each year the University runs a number of events to celebrate British Science Week in March.
We brought British Science Week 2021 straight to schools and homes by offering a range of online opportunities to engage with STEM activities for your learners.
British Science Week activities
You can also follow us on Twitter (@UoMSchools) where we’ll be signposting other STEM activities and resources taking place during British Science Week.
We've created online STEM resources around the theme of waves, materials and sound for primary and secondary students.
Meet a mathematician
KS4–5 students can watch videos of some of the researchers in the Mathematics of Waves and Materials Group and find out about their work.
You can find more videos on the group's YouTube channel: MWMmaths.
