Launched in 2005, with the help of funding from the European Commission, the British Council’s Science in Schools programme brings dynamic UK-based scientists into secondary schools to talk about their research, its impact on society and what it’s like to work as a researcher.
Our changing climate will impact at the global, national and local levels, therefore Climate 4 Classrooms provides curriculum linked teaching resources about climate change for pupils across five countries: Indonesia, China, Bangladesh, Mexico and the UK.
The Middle East and North Africa partnerships (MENA) are involved in the Connecting Classrooms project that encourage schools from the UK to link with schools in the British Council regions to carry out joint projects. These projects increase pupils' knowledge and understanding of each other's societies as well as contribute to professional development and promotes the exchange of teaching practice.
NGS is a series of science based events for young people in collaboration with top scientists and academic institutions in the UK and the Netherlands. NGS events provide a space for encounters between dynamic, successful and often young scientists and the public. Schools, such as Preston Manor in the UK, have been involved in bringing their interest in science to a wider audience.
