Gopher Science Labs

Simple hands-on science activities to build children's confidence and encourage their natural curiosity to find out how and why everyday things work

 

 Gopher Science Labs

 

This project supports transition from primary to secondary school with peer to peer learning across age groups. Secondary students learn how to deliver the range of Gopher Science Lab activities to primary pupils. During this process the secondary students develop their skills in communication, innovation and increase their self-confidence. Later the primary pupils who attended the Gopher Science Lab day are encouraged to deliver their own training to pupils in their class or from younger year groups, so they too can develop their understanding and communication skills, with supervision from their teacher. This gives all participating students ownership of their learning and helps them gain confidence.
