The Brian Cox School Experiment series can easily be carried out at home and the accompanying videos provide guidance and real-world context. Equally, the simple activity sheets produced to accompany the 2019 Young People's Book Prize shortlisted books could be something that parents do with younger children. For older students there a number of lectures from the You and the Planet series that could be watched to enhance teaching and learning.

Professor Tamsin Mather, winner of the Royal Society Rosalind Franklin Award 2018, has used her award grant money to develop a set of teaching resources focusing on women researching in STEM. Help your students to explore topics such as volcanic eruptions or how much rain fell on the dinosaurs, and find out more about the women behind the research. You can access the resources, Your science out there, free online.
