Children from ten schools in Barking and Dagenham are gearing up for a Great Science Share.

The event is part of a national campaign designed to get children talking about and sharing the science lessons they learn in school.

On June 19, pupils will gather at Barking’s Gascoigne Primary School to take part in science activities. They’ll be joined by Cambridge University physicist, Dr Helen Mason, and they’ll be conducting live Skype link-ups with other Science Share events across the country.

Organisers of the Great Science Share for Barking and Dagenham – Kulvinder Johal from Northbury Primary and Liz Lawrence from the council – said: “We are very excited to be welcoming our local schools to this event and are looking forward to learning from the children about their scientific discoveries. “Science communication is a vital skill and the Great Science Share for Schools creates the perfect opportunity for children to share their learning in interesting and often very dynamic ways.”
