• The children benefited from seeing how the things they learn at school are relevant to the real world.
  • Hopefully, we have inspired some of them to study science further in the future and who knows, maybe one or two could come and work here in 10 years time.
  • Our involvement in Children Challenging Industry is a real example of how the company's vision to be involved and have commitment to our neighbours is actually put into practice.

Support for primary science education is at the heart of CIEC’s work, providing curriculum-linked resources for teachers and children to access, as well as training and CPD opportunities for the teaching and learning of primary science.

  • CIEC resources consist of downloadable materials* for teachers and interactive areas for children to access with teacher guidance. For teachers of the 4-12 age range, these resources promote hands-on practical enquiry, problem-solving, team work and discussions, and are set in real industrial contexts.
  • Training and CPD opportunities are available for teachers in regions where our Children Challenging Industry programme is active, courses we lead for the National Science Learning Centre in York, Association of Science Education events, and bespoke events for clusters of schools or other organisations. A full list of up and coming events is available in current events, contact us if you would like us to run a bespoke event for your school.
  • CIEC supports teachers in understanding and implementing the changes to the English science curriculum, and has created supporting documentation on progression and links between the new curriculum and all of our resources.
