Aimed at primary level, this activity pack contains a range of different activities based on the theme of ‘accidental discoveries’. The activities cover a mixture of topics including: materials and their properties, circuits, the heart and microorganisms. They introduce scientists and the accidental discoveries they made, providing a short background to the discovery and an investigation which is linked to it. Designed for use in class or within a science week or club they promote investigative work and communication skills or include: making silly putty, testing pulse rates, investigating melting in a microwave and making a fizzy drink. 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.
