A digital campaign to provide free learning resources for teachers and parents has been launched ahead of British Science Week, which this year takes place from 6–15 March.
Called ’31 Days of Learning’, the project will grant families and schools access to a range of engaging learning materials, nurturing students’ interest in both science and creative subjects at home and in class.
Hosted by the award-winning UK parenting blog KiddyCharts, the digital event will lay out plans for exciting experiments, crafts, projects and games to inspire a love of STEM and STEAM subjects. From creating rainbow slime to growing their own fruit and veg, these hands-on activities will help students understand how science and the arts are intrinsically linked.
From 1 March, a new activity will be launched via the KiddyCharts website each day throughout the month. On top enhancing their knowledge of particular subjects, the project also aims to boost their awareness around mental and physical health.

Recognised as the UK’s learning parenting blog by Rise Global, KiddyCharts is the only UK blog to be registered as a social enterprise, with most of its profit going to charity. All proceeds from the 31 Days of Learning campaign for British Science Week will be donated to Reverence for Life – a charity that supports local and international charities in their work to help the homeless, disadvantaged and vulnerable people, and children affected by HIV/AIDS.
“31 Days of Learning will give parents and teachers access to fantastic free resources just in time for British Science Week,” said Helen Neale, creator of KiddyCharts. “We’ve recruited some of the UK’s best-known bloggers to help us, and each day they’ll provide an exciting new activity for kids – helping them learn about the world around us while raising money for a really important cause.”
Teachers and parents are encouraged to visit kiddycharts.com to access the free resources. Content will be available via Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag #31DaysofLearning.
