14:30-15:00 GMT

 

A number of non-UK schools will be taking part in this event; if you have linked schools you may wish to suggest it as a joint activity.

 

If you take part in this event you will be able to join our closed schools site with activities and experiments to do during science week, about biodiversity in your local area.

We have had water testing kits donated for our VC participant schools to use, and will have enough to send to some schools who watch the streamed event.

 

Live chat events

We also have live chat events with scientists from the team on Thursday 8th March 1300-1430, and Tuesday 13th March 1300-1430.
