Double Helix and Home Learning

Double Helix and home learning in times of COVID-19

Our lifestyles are rapidly changing due to COVID-19. We want to help support young readers in their learning, including those spending more time at home. We’ve put together a handy list of our children’s resources below.


Double Helix blog

Looking for interesting science, technology, engineering and maths ideas? For our latest news, hands-on activities, quizzes and brainteasers, visit the Double Helix blog. This includes some recent articles explaining COVID-19 for young readers.

There is plenty of free content that can be used at home to support learning. Posts can be searched by subject (e.g. biological sciences, chemical sciences, maths, etc.) Look out for the ‘categories’ and ‘tags’ on each post to help you group the content you’re after.
