Science Year begins in September and targets young people aged 10-19. The aim is to engage them in science and boost the take up of science subjects after 16. You can register for a weekly newsletter. For more information and to download a teachers' booklet, visit www.scienceyear.com.
A new campaign has been launched in schools to try to keep children away from quarries this summer. Quarry managers will be visiting schools across the country to show pupils a special Play Safe - Stay Safe video and the Quarry Products Association has produced educational resource pacs for infants and juniors.
The resource packs and video are available from Elizabeth Clements at the QPA. Call 020 7730 8194.
