Spark children’s curiosity with Explorify
Explorify is a free new programme by the Wellcome Trust for primary school teachers that sparks pupils’ curiosity and develops their thinking skills. It’s free to use, requires very little preparation, and is easy to slot into your everyday timetable.
The programme is open to all teachers of primary school pupils aged 5-11. There are over 50 activities as part of structured programme stages.
The Wellcome Trust has created high-quality activities with images, video and other materials to stimulate curiosity, discussion and debate about the world around us.
Explorify helps teachers to encourage questioning, observation, comparing, wondering and discovery. It can stretch what pupils think about science – that it is more than just potions and explosions.
Thinking this way means that everyone can get involved. There are no wrong answers. Every answer is another step along the way to greater understanding.
Children can be really inspired by science and Explorify provides an excellent platform to teach it regularly. Most importantly, this programme helps children to explore the many traits of being a scientist.
