House of Science - Annual Report 2020

Students making flubber, glow-in-the- dark polymers and crystals, all from the NanoChem kit.

Last year we continued sponsoring the House of Science to provide teachers and children with resources and equipment to teach science with at least one ‘NanoChem’ box at every House of Science branch.

There are 14 copies of our NanoChem kit in circulation and it was booked by schools (for a week at at time) 221 times in 2020 - which is not a bad stat given the interruptions to classroom teaching in 2020.

We had some amazing learning out of this kit and my students said this was the best one yet. They absolutely loved it.
