Investigate is a free hands-on science centre where students can take charge of their own learning.

Investigate for Secondary focuses specifically on using scientific skills. Students are empowered to conduct their own investigation, choosing from hundreds of real, hands on specimens. They will be encouraged to make detailed observations, to generate interesting hypotheses and crucially, present evidence from their observations to support their ideas.

Students are then encouraged to discuss and debate their ideas, challenge each other’s evidence, and consider how we could go on to test certain hypotheses. Importantly, students are asked to consider why these skills are valuable to them: in science, in their other studies and in their daily lives.

Our team of science educators facilitate the session. Microscopes, scales, magnifying glasses, rulers, pencils and paper are available for students to use in their enquiries.

Learning themes: working scientifically
