Children Learning Science

Get involved

Come and be inspired

You can catch the Operation Earth family show at our participating Science Centres where you can also take part in the experiments and activities yourself. Operation Earth is about getting involved wherever you might be, so we’ve got a couple of activities you can try at home, and loads of amazing Citizen Science projects you can find out about and see what you can do.

Try this at Home

Science is all about experimenting and finding out about why everything is the way it is. Science doesn’t need to happen in a lab though it can happen in your own home. Try these experiments and release your inner scientist. Ask an adult to help you upload a picture of your experiment to inspire other budding scientists!

Citizen Science

Citizen science is to use the power of collaborative volunteer research to explore or collect huge data sets that researchers simply wouldn’t be able to do on their own. It is now easier than ever to take part, with smartphones, or even a notepad, to capture and contribute information about the natural world.
