Science Competition-

The theme this year is ‘Time’, – there are loads of STEM topics, which have been explored across the week! Children will need to create a poster (on plain A4 or A3 paper) showing how a certain type of technology has changed over time, or even the advancement of time-telling technology itself. Budding poster makers could also go futuristic showing us how they think the world might look in years to come, or perhaps look at nature – lifecycles, lifespans, evolution and hibernation – nature is full of timely topics.


British Science Week 2024 marks the Week’s 30th anniversary, with the inaugural celebration happening in 1994. Children could think about scientific innovations since then, or explore 1994 itself – what was life like 30 years ago?

Here are some points and questions to get you going: 

  1. Get children to think about their own time – how do they spend it? At home, out playing in the park, arts and crafts, learning at school? 
  2. What about time in the world, and beyond? How do we measure time – seconds, days, seasons, centuries? What about time in space?
  3. Are there any scientists they know of whose work relates to time? What about time travel in films, TV and music?
