Abstract

Informal science learning opportunities for preschool children are relatively rare in the United Kingdom. An outreach project was set up to provide accessible, public science-based play learning activity sessions for preschool (0-5 years) children, accompanied by accessible scientific background information for adults. Events run in northwest England have been well attended, with positive feedback. These experiences indicate that parents/carers and children benefit from accessing such opportunities and that public facilities such as local libraries provide ideal spaces for presenting them.
