Chat about a science scavenger hunt

IOP chat


We've teamed up with the Institute of Physics to help overcome the stereotypes that surround learning about physics, encourage parents to become great role models for this subject and to inspire children to enjoy learning more about science. Have a go at the activity below to show your child how physics can be relevant to their everyday life.

Science scavenger hunt

The next time you’re out and about, have a go at a science scavenger hunt! Tick off the things you see on your journey that help us understand how our bodies work (like a hand sanitiser dispenser), tackle climate change (such as a recycling bin), or reduce the amount of electricity we use (like a solar panel). Note down where you saw them and when you get home, chat about the things you saw.
