Primary science workshops

    Hello,
    I teach part-time (Secondary science) and work part-time for a University doing science outreach. From September I've been asked to deliver primary workshops to local schools. I've designed a workshop involving car ramps so pupils can learn about forces. I'd like to offer schools another choice of workshop so I'd like to know from a primary teacher's point of view which other topics would be the most helpful/popular to cover.

    Any ideas/suggestions would be much appreciation.

    Thanks

    Perhaps look at the National Curriculum for Primary Science - there's a range of topics and it may also depend on which age group you intend to engage (KS1/LKS2/UKS2). Then pick an area that particularly interests you as you'll be more inspired with your workshop ideas.

    In my experience science investigations involving vehicles on ramps to learn about forces are quite common in primary schools. Staff are often less confident with investigations involving light, using data loggers, effects of levers/pulleys/gears and air resistance (except parachutes and spinners).
