Making STEM Accessible for every child

Discovery Diaries are free, arts-based STEM programmes that empower students to think like a scientist. Our aim is to get our resources to every school and to every child, especially those who need them most. This year we aim to have 300,000 students registered to complete one of the Diary programmes.

The Deep Space Diary is Here

The Deep Space Diary has officially launched. Written by Dr Olivia Johnson and developed in partnership with the Science and Technologies Facilities Council (STFC) this brand new KS2/P4-6 diary is themed around the James Webb Space Telescope. Flexible and easy-to-use, the Deep Space Diary is supported by teaching notes, lesson plans, self-evaluations, customised curriculum links, multimedia and more.

  • I would rate this very highly in relation to other STEM resources. The format is accessible, the drawings are interesting. Putting their photograph on the front makes it theirs, gives it ownership.

    Dawn McFall, Primary School Teacher
  • It is a massive testament to the skill of whoever designed the Space Diary that not one child had ‘lost’ theirs over the summer. Indeed, they treasure them.

    Teresa Harris, Head of Science at Westbrook Hay
  • It is a fantastic resource. Clear teaching guides and plans to follow with excellent differentiation for various abilities. [Students] would frequently ask, ‘When are we doing our Mars Diary?’

    Hannah Chivers, Primary School Teacher
