Max Science primary is a highly engaging and effective scheme based on the most successful teaching methodologies used in world science today. The programme utilises Enquiry Based Learning which allows learners to fully engage with the concepts they are learning and makes learning contextualised to their own experiences and curiosities.

Max Science primary introduces learners to the key concepts and topics of primary biology, chemistry and physics with carefully-scaffolded resources that build knowledge and confidence throughout the course. All the content has been written by a highly experienced and knowledgeable author team. As well as following the most effective approaches for mastering scientific skills, our titles focus on the challenges posed by scientific language and are carefully designed to promote fluency of scientific language and terminology.
