Educational resources and activities for schools

Schools engagement

All of our resources and activities are free for teachers and pupils to access.

They are designed to support the teaching of the new curriculum in Wales and are listed according to curriculum themes:

The audience for each resource is given in order of Key Stages and school years.

The resources have been produced by members of staff, PhD students and medical students, specifically to enhance the learning of science and health subjects, and to raise aspirations and interest in those areas of study.

If you have any queries about any of the resources, or would like any information about our Science in Health activities for schools, please contact us.
