Project Science is series of simple hands-on activities that aim to support primary school classroom practitioners to use the scientific method and explore real-life research with their learners. 

In this microbiology toolkit, for teachers working with pupils aged 8 - 14 years old, we provide free downloadable classroom resources to support your learners to use the scientific method to investigate pond water microorganisms.

These step-by-step, fun, curriculum-linked investigations develop your young explorer's understanding of how science works and prepares them to create their own investigations. 

We aim to inspire the next generation of scientists and science communicators by offering opportunities for young people; including school pupils, undergraduates and PhD students.
