Global experiments

Enable your students to explore the power of data and collaboration with large-scale experiments designed to open their imaginations, enhance their science learning and encourage practical investigation.

These engaging hands-on group activities can be adapted for all ages and abilities. Despite being designed for mass participation, they use widely available everyday items so your students can take part whether they’re at home, in class, or anywhere in the world.

Although we no longer support the ability to upload and view data, these are the perfect activities to get your classes excited about science and put chemistry in context.
