Science and literacy activities

CIEC have partnered with the Royal Society to bring you six engaging, practical science activities that relate to the Young People's Book Prize shortlisted books of 2019. Click on an image below to download one of these activities.

Every year the Royal Society invites schools, libraries, science centres and youth groups to form a mass judging panel across the UK and vote for the winner of the Young People's Book Prize. Over 350 schools receive the six shortlisted books and vote for the winner.
