Kiosks to give science a try

6th December 2002 at 00:00
A national push for its TryScience "global education centre" is being made by IBM, which is introducing TryScience kiosks into UK science and technology centres. TryScience is aimed at 8 to 14-year-olds and their teachers and parents. The project is backed by the Centre for Science Education and the Association for Science Education. You can check out the programme and its text messaging service for key stage 3 science teachers called Science UPD8 at the TryScience website.
