British Science Week: secondary activity 2020

This activity pack, managed by the British Science Association, supports the theme "Our Diverse Planet" for British Science Week (although it can be used at any time). The activities are arranged in three groups titled Diverse Jobs, Diverse People and Preserving Natural Diversity; each group describes four activities. The activities are open-ended and adaptable, with some taking 15-20 minutes and other taking over 2 hours to complete. The pack also includes ideas for school assemblies and for a poster competition, as well as advice on using volunteers and having students lead the activities.
