This list of science resources has been collected and assured with support from learned societies and subject organisations, including:

  • the Association for Science Education (ASE)
  • the Institute of Physics (IOP)
  • the Royal Society
  • the Royal Society of Biology (RSB)
  • the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC)
  • STEM Learning

These resources link closely to the national curriculum, however there are many other resources supporting enrichment and practical activities available on the societies’ websites and elsewhere.

Care should be taken that all activities, especially practical activities, are undertaken safely and with due regard for the abilities of the pupil.

Teachers and parents/carers should check that activities are appropriate for the intended user and that they can be carried out safely in the home environment.
