The new-look website is now more user friendly and all branding has been updated to reflect the wider rebranding of the ABPI in recent months. The website helps teachers and students learn about a wide range of scientific subjects in a fun and interactive way and it links topics studied in school to their application in industry and in research.
All resources on the website are provided completely free of charge with the aim of encouraging more young people to pursue a career in science.
Features of the website include:
a resource library where science teachers can download animations and diagrams to use in their lessons
five separate sections for different age groups, ranging from 5 to 7 year olds, to 16 to 19 year olds
tests and quizzes designed to test the knowledge of students.
Commenting, Sarah Jones, Education and Skills Manager at the ABPI, said:
"I am delighted with the new-look website. The topic-based materials we provide are a useful aid to the teaching of the school curriculum and our aim is to foster a long lasting interest in the sciences in children of all ages."
