We’re having a party!


Wednesday 5 July

Wednesday 5 July is Great British Science Club. There will be lots of events and activities happening nationwide on this day and in the week leading up to it.

You could host a science themed party, run a celebration themed science investigation or celebrate the achievements of your science club this year with an awards ceremony. Why not invite other students, family or community members to get involved too? See below for more ideas.

All schools in the UK are invited to take part. We are encouraging those in England and Wales to host an event on the 5 July. Schools in Scotland and Northern Ireland can also get involved by hosting events from 26 June. Join the party and tweet about your event using #CREST30.

Schools in Wales can apply for funding of £250 to run a CREST Discovery Day, thanks to funding from the Welsh Government. Simply complete the application form here.
