Happy British Science Week!

We hope you have found lots of opportunities to get stuck in with some science activities over British Science Week. We have a busy week lined up for our Nano Simbox team.


Big Bang Fair, NEC Birmingham, 14 – 18 March

We will be at Big Bang Fair in Birmingham with an interactive stand where visitors can use Nano Simbox. Over the week, Big Bang will have theatre shows, interactive workshops and exhibits and careers information from STEM professionals. It’s a great opportunity for us to show young people how fun and interactive science can be – you don’t have to be sat at your desk to learn about the invisible world that surrounds us!

Dr. Becky Sage, CEO of iSci commented “we are really excited to be part to Big Bang Fair because we know we will get to meet the next generation of innovators and their passionate science teachers. These are the people who we will take with us on our journey to make science learning engaging, inclusive, exploratory, relevant to everyday lives and fit for purpose for our 21st century world.”

Tweet us what you are looking forward to at this year’s #bigbangfair and say hello if you are there. We will be at stand 211 all week with virtual reality and you can have a go on our app, Molecules and Me


Unit DX, Bristol, 15th March

Unit DX is a new science incubator being built in the center of Bristol, and during Science Week they are hosting a open day for year 6 students so they can discover science and the endless possibilities. We’re really excited to show students how they can explore molecules in a new and creative environment, and give them a taster of what scientists can do! Nano Simbox is a essential tool creates effective innovation in the chemical industry and better communication between scientific teams. Use the hashtag #UnitDXopening to follow the event!


Don’t forget to enter our competition!

Don’t forget, we are still running our competition to find the nation’s favourite molecule – and you could win a VR workshop for your school! Details on how to enter can be found at nanosimbox.com/competitions. You could run this activity during science week, and challenge your class to find a molecule that behaves in a certain way or one that poses a challenge in the future. Our app Molecules and Me could be a great starting point for discussions.

We hope you have a great science week celebrating STEM!
