Science


Whether you think that electricity can spark an interest in science, or that oxidation reactions can create a burning desire to learn, we believe that the best resources can help sow the seed of scientific enquiry, letting it blossom into… OK, OK, enough tortured science metaphors.

But we really do think that the stuff in Doddle Science will help you nurture a love of science in your students – if not of bad metaphors.
