British Science Week is fast approaching and if you are looking for science shows for schools, or science workshops, Braintastic! Science has you covered. Our spectacular science shows are packed with fun demos and wow moments to get your students excited by science and ignite their curiosity about the brain. If you are looking for a live science show or workshop for schools, head to our homepage to find out more, or just get in touch to discuss what you need.

But we also know that time and money are tight, so if an in-person school science show is out of reach for you this year, we have another great option- our online British Science Week 2024 package for KS2. The British Science Week 2024 theme is Time, so we have focused the package around this, giving your students a chance to explore the time it takes to make new connections in their brains and learn new things.




This great-value package includes a show, a hands-on workshop and a homework activity- enough content for you to run two fantastic themed lessons, with minimal prep time, as well as providing a chance for the students to carry on their learning at home. And if you've had funding from a British Science Week grant you could add in a live Q&A session for your students to ask our expert presenters all their questions about the brain!

Here’s how we suggest you break it down:

In this session, students will watch a full length version of our interactive show Memory Games, and learn about how the brain changes when we learn new things. Through a series of memory games and quizzes, we explore how memories are stored in the brain, and cover tips and tricks for making the most of their memories, and reducing the time it takes to learn something new


This studio quality pre-rec is highly interactive, and the streaming link will be available for all of British Science Week (plus a few days before and after), so you can watch it as many times as you like!

Test your grownups! At home, the students will challenge their adults to a short (~10min) learning task, and discover who gets better faster: adults or kids!

Then, in the follow-up lesson, you can combine results from the homework task and plot a whole-class graph to show the time it takes for kids & adults to learn.

In this fun workshop, you’ll introduce the students to the idea of brain plasticity- our brain's amazing ability to change and learn new things over time.


Then, they will create their own pieces of brain-themed artwork, using these ideas to show how each of our brains is different and unique, and changes throughout our lives.

​​Special Bonus!

The first 10 schools to book the package also get to join a live Q&A session with one of our expert presenters, completely free, to ask them any questions about the brain!
