About Explorify (funded by Wellcome Trust)
Explorify is a free, award-winning easy-to-use digital resource to inspire primary pupils to think more deeply about science in the world around them. We at Wellcome (a charitable health foundation) have produced Explorify as part of our campaign to support teachers with science in primary schools throughout the UK.
Explorify encourages your children to ask questions, wonder and think together about the science in the world around them. We designed it with teachers to encourage creative discussion among pupils of all abilities with activities linked to UK national curricula. Explorify also provides support materials and articles for teachers and subject leaders too. Before you know it, you’ll see your pupils develop their thinking skills and begin to wonder like scientists.
