The Planet Science website was originally developed for Science Year in 2001. It was designed to stimulate the imagination about science and technology among school students, young people, teachers and parents. The archive collection was replaced by a new Planet Science website in 2010.
The site provides a large collection of free, fun and inspiring science resources for primary and secondary school students, parents and teachers. The resources have a wide range of different formats including text based information, games, videos, quizzes and practical work. Many of the resources are interactive.
