The British Council and the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation are delighted to announce Science Week in Schools, a nationwide celebration of science and technology taking place from 23 to 27 October 2017 as part of the UK-Russia Year of Science and Education 2017.

Science Week in Schools is supported by the Russian Textbook Corporation.

Teachers' Pack

To help teachers across Russia participate in Science Week in Schools, the British Council, in partnership with the British Science AssociationAstro Academy: Principia and the ENGAGE Project have created a special teaching resource pack which can be used to plan and deliver lessons on science and inspire entries to our Science of the Future competition.

The pack includes lesson plans, exercises and assignments for students, videos, recommendations for class discussions and useful links. The pack also features lessons on the impact of 3D printing on society; aircraft design; the search for life on the satellite of Saturn and lots more.

The pack is available for download for free in both Russian and English below.

The British Council invites teachers across Russia to celebrate Science Week in Schools and to take part in our Science of the Future competition for the best lesson plan on science and technology. All applicants will receive certificates while three winners will take part in an all-expense paid professional development trip to the UK in 2018!
