The Science Bug teaching and learning cycle

We know that children construct their understanding of the world through experience. In order to make learning real, children need to explore, ask questions, and assess their understanding.

This approach underpins the Science Bug teaching and learning cycle you see here.

Science Bug

We believe that to instil scientific confidence in children and to be able to inspire future generations of young scientists, we need to spark their imagination and fuel their curiosity with hands-on, experiential science. But just as importantly, we need inspiring teachers at the helm to bring it all to life.

In Science Bug, we provide support and guidance for you to use in a way that's right for you, and a raft of exciting activities, tools and suggestions to inspire your science teaching.
