Support with running your primary school science fair

The knowledge and resources the University can share with your school to help you run your own science fair

How we can help your school

The University of Bath is keen to share its expertise with other organisations. The Widening Participation team has a wealth of expertise in running science fairs both large and small including the popular Bath Taps into Science festival.

We are keen to support local primary schools wishing to run their own fair or festival and can help in a number of ways.

  • Working in partnership with two primary schools we have created a booklet which sets out the key elements of organising a fair or festival. If you would like a copy please email us

  • Researchers at the University of Bath have developed interactive exhibition stands and we can contact them to see if they are able to attend one of your science fairs

  • We also have some resources that your school may be able to borrow such as jumpers for staff and volunteers, lab coats and glasses
