Aimed at students aged 5-14 years, this pack contains a range of different activities based on the theme of waste. The activities cover a mixture of topics including: the environment and pollution, recycling, separating materials, waste degradation, and digestion. Designed for use in class or within a science week or club they promote investigative work and communication skills and include: creating air particle detection discs, making recycled paper and investigating digestion. Teachers' notes are provided within the pack and include concise summaries of the science involved in the investigations. This resource is part of the British Science Association’s National Science & Engineering Week activity pack series. National Science & Engineering Week (NSEW) is a ten-day national programme of science, technology, engineering and maths events and activities across the UK aimed at people of all ages.
