Earn Your Science Reporter Badge!
Science communication is an important skill to learn so that you can tell the world about your scientific discoveries in a way that everyone can understand. To earn your Whizz Pop Bang Science Reporter badge, simply complete JUST ONE of the following options...
1) Write a science review
Your review could be about a science book, science museum or science event that you’ve been to. Why not take some notes as you go along and then use these to write up a full report? You could take some photos or video too if you like.
2) Science news report
Create a report on a scientific news story – this could be a written report or you could film a video or audio news report and send us a link to it online. Make sure you do some research into the story to find out the facts and present them in an interesting way with a catchy headline!
3) Report on an experiment
Write or record a report about a science experiment. It could be an experiment that you’ve done yourself or one that you’ve seen reported in the news. Try to explain why and how the experiment was done, as well as reporting on the results and conclusions.
