About the event
Become a scientist this half term with the amazing online Discovery Week from world-famous science centre, The Francis Crick Institute.
From 25-30 May we’ll be surprising and inspiring you and your family with something new every day. With crazy crafting, kitchen challenges and the chance to meet our brilliant scientists, as well as lots of downloadable resources to keep you busy.
In each day’s task there’s a hidden clue to hunt down. Keep hold of these as by the end of the week, they’ll reveal the golden word and you’ll be in for a chance to win great prizes, including a £50 Amazon voucher.
