Science Week with BBC Bitesize

If you missed them on CBBC and BBC Two, you can tune into the science-themed Bitesize programmes on either iPlayer or the Red Button at any time.

Our amazing Explainers from the Science and Industry Museum are featured, carrying out table-top experiments that are simple enough to try along at home. We also have lots of jaw-dropping, large-scale experiments filmed in the Science Museum’s Wonderlab: The Equinor Gallery in London.

Below are links to each programme on iPlayer according to age range.
