Your science planning is about to get a LOT easier!
Welcome to The Science Brainery, the online resource site from LoveScience.
Are you a home educator looking for interactive science resources to help inspire and engage your junior scientists?
Are you a primary teacher looking for some extra resources to support your science teaching or for some fun starters?
Are you a science co-ordinator or headteacher looking for whole school resources with remote learning capacity?
Then you're in the right place, from individual worksheets and stand alone fun games, to themed lessons right up to remote access lessons for all your pupils we have a range of ways to support you.
WE BELIEVE IN GETTING STUCK IN
Science offers a unique chance for children to learn by truly immersing themselves. Practical work allows them to 'safely fail', evaluate, try again and experience the absolute thrill when things do finally work! There are also endless 'why' questions - some of which still have no answers - that can lead to brilliant voyages of discovery where children can stumble upon the most amazing facts and stories.
The Science Brainery aims to help you give your children this immersive experience by bringing together experiments, online games, stories and challenges to do together or to let your budding scientists discover on their own.

CURRICULUM LINKED MODULES
* Year 5 and 6 available now * these modules are jam packed with activities to support the statutory requirements. They are designed to give teachers a variety of online games and challenges, experiments and printables to suit your class and their needs. The quizzes and games are also self marking and provide feedback so are perfect to use as a class or to set children as extension or support work individually.
FOR HOME EDUCATORS
FREE NANO CLUB
The nano club is our free hub with access to all the activities in our weekly newsletter, The Brainery Times, all our previous challenges and some of our favourite experiments, games and science stories.
ONLINE COURSES WITH KITS
Take the credit for brilliant science with none of the hassle of sorting it out! Our online courses last 3 week and are delivered over zoom, with recorded lessons just in case you can't make the lives and a fully equipped kit and lab book sent out to you.
THE DEKA CLUB WEEKLY SESSIONS
Every week, our deka club boffins explore a different topic through live masterclasses and easy experiment sessions along with factfiles and research tasks and online games. You can pop along just for the week or sign up for the term.
CURRICULUM LINKED MODULES
Our curriculum linked modules are a great way to allow your children to explore topics in greater depth. They can either be used as part of your lessons or as self study topics for your budding scientists to work through.
The Science Brainery has been designed by Abigail Carr who started teaching science at secondary level in 2002 before founding LoveScience in 2013. Love Science has delivered workshops and clubs to thousands of primary aged children in schools, libraries, festivals and other venues throughout England and Scotland. Whilst researching Primary Science education as part of her MA in Online and Distance Education, it appeared to Abigail that there was a need for a resource to help teachers, home educators and parents save time and resources in science teaching and The Science Brainery was born!
So, put down your planning and have a look around our free HUB for handy activities and make your (science teaching) life a whole lot easier.
