LaunchPacks: Science

Digital classroom resources to meet curriculum needs.

Teachers spend nearly two hours every night searching for supplemental resources and creating materials for lessons, so we’ve put together over 1,000 collections of articles, images, videos and primary sources designed to support primary schools teachers in creating science lessons.

Each pack is created for a specific topic and teachers can add, remove or amend content as they see fit, so that even non-specialist teachers can easily collaborate content in one place and provide learners with the best support possible in their education.

Scientific Working

Resources within LaunchPacks encourage students to use enquiry-based learning, and engage them meaningfully with the research that they're undertaking.

Building Knowledge

Three levels of learning across all articles helps students to develop and research at their own understanding, and to build and improve their knowledge over time.

English Language Support

Built-in tools such as a text-to-speech function, translation tools and a double-click dictionary helps students to grow their vocabulary, and is especially useful for students whom have English as a second language.
