About the free kit

We delivered free science resources kits to every school and FE college in the UK. We also sent the kits to PRUs, teacher training institutions and many other learning settings.

There are two tailored resources kits available:

The Crunch for children aged 4 to 11
Secondary Box
The Crunch for students aged 11 to 19
Primary box

Each kit is packed full of scientific equipment, lesson notes and practical activities for every age group to help you and your students explore the links between our food, our health and our planet. From finding out what a chocolate biscuit and an orangutan have in common, to encoding green fluorescent protein, the kits have everything you need to use practical science to explore some of the most important problems we face today.

There'll also be loads of online resources to help you bring The Crunch to your students, with videos, cross-curricular resources and specially commissioned plays.

Watch how The Crunch activities have been used by teachers, students, young people and The Crunch Ambassadors. Discover what you can do with the free resources both inside and outside of the classroom.

You don’t need to sign up or register – we have sent a kit automatically to your science leader or head of Biology. And yes, it's completely free.
