#GSCAtHome during lockdown
The hugely popular series of over 115 #GSCAtHome videos are freely available, at all times, to households looking for fun and educational science to enjoy at home during lockdown.
Gather the household together every day at 10am as our team of science communicators bring you exciting science activities to try at home and things to learn together.
Our team are working to put together curated, curriculum-linked, #GSCAtHome playlists suitable for lockdown learning at home, in particular for families with young children aged 7 and under.
For week beginning 25 January, our suggested #GSCAtHome playlist is Food, Glorious Food.
Pupils will learn how their bodies digest food, the chemicals and chemical reactions that make their food tasty, and what other living things eat.
- Journey Through My Body
- Cake in a Cup
- Home-made Ice Cream
- Sunshine Food
You'll find all these videos in the Food, Glorious Food playlist on YouTube.
We also love seeing the results of your home experiments, so don’t forget to share your photos and videos with us using #GSCAtHome.
For week beginning 18 January, our suggested #GSCAtHome playlist is Our Place in Space. Come on a journey through space that'll span the Solar System!
Pupils will gain an idea of the size of the Solar System, and Earth's place within it. They will be able to describe some characteristics of the other planets, and design their own.
- Scale Model of the Solar System
- Tour of Earth
- Three Things About Saturn
- Tour of the Dwarf Planets
- Design Your Own Planet
You'll find all these and some extra related videos in the Our Place in Space playlist on YouTube.
