Would you like a forum setting up so that those on the visit can add information directly (you would need to be logged in to your school learning platform to access this)?

The Primary Science Enhancement Programme combines context-led and investigative approaches to the teaching of science and helps children to explore their understanding of the concepts involved. PSEP provides support for Sc1 including some of the more difficult areas such as considering evidence. PSEP aims to:

  • Improve children's skills in planning and carrying out investigation
  • Increase understanding of manufacturing industry and the applications of science
  • Enhance science teaching skills

NEW: From Summer Term 2011 the material currently on this site will be free, open access.

In the meantime, for a one-off administrative payment of just £15, UK users can be sent a username and password which will allow unlimited access to all children's interactive areas, plus CPD for teachers, video clips, interactive whiteboard materials and other valuable teaching resources with free download. Find out more about PSEP Subscription.
The Children Challenging Industry (CCI) project, which began in 1996, aims to create enthusiasm for learning science amongst primary school children by providing classroom-based training for the teaching of the National Curriculum for Science. This, and liaison with local science-based manufacturing companies, enables pupils to see how the science they learn at school is used in a 'real life' context.
Aimed at children aged 5 to 11, this web site has animations
that show how machinery in the chemical industry works.

How a cooling tower, filter press, reaction vessel, heat exchanger,
brine evaporator, extruder works.
