Practical science isn’t just for the laboratory, and not all experiments require expensive lab equipment or chemicals. Our new Everyday Science digital resource is a fantastic way to promote practical science almost anywhere, helping learners carry out scientific investigations using everyday materials that are readily available in their homes or local area.
Thanks to the simple, engaging investigations, Everyday Science means that all students can benefit from practical science in a safe and supported way. Because the investigations use everyday items such as food colouring and paper towels, students can complete the investigations independently, for example as a homework task, or in a normal classroom when lab time is limited, or schools don’t have a lab facility.
Everyday Science covers the key concepts we expect learners to develop as part of their Cambridge IGCSE, O Level and International AS & A Level Science studies. Students will learn about the scientific method as they are asked to predict, observe, explain, plan, analyse and evaluate. There are 18 investigations to choose from, each one linking to the experimental skills and investigations (AO3) that learners should be able to demonstrate as part of this course:
Learners can access the investigations from any device without needing to log in, then work through their own investigation, responding to reflective challenges, storing their thoughts and responses as they go. Progress is automatically stored in a journal, allowing learners to review their findings, export their work and submit to their teachers as evidence.
We’ve made it easy for teachers to share the investigations with learners, whether by email, Microsoft Teams, through a Google Classroom, or with any existing tools in your school.
Everyday Science is available to all registered Cambridge International Schools as part of the programme fee. Existing schools can access the resources immediately through the relevant syllabus page on our School Support Hub.
