Encouraging Science Curiosity

The Great Science Share for Schools (GSSfS)  is an annual event encouraging children to share their own scientific questions and investigations. It is a great way to build science curiosity, collaboration and confidence.

Engineering At Primary

At Burlington we are working with the ‘Science and Engineering Education Research and Innovation Hub’ (SEERIH) at the University of Manchester who are passionate about inspiring young people regarding Engineering. This is so that pupils can understand the importance of science and engineering in our world and attain high quality knowledge and understanding from participating in interesting and engaging activities.

Children Challenging Industry

Through CIEC our pupils will work with Industry to learn more about relevant, local Science careers in a safe and engaging way. Due to Covid, this will be virtual with a professional individual leading the learning virtually whilst our teachers facilitate the resources needed. It is an excellent opportunity for our students to learn more, develop their science capital and take a virtual tour into a working industry.
