The Scottish Government published a strategy that recommended increasing science education at primary school level. We aimed to develop a series of activities for primary school pupils and teachers, with children encouraged to take the lead in presenting what they had learned. Activities were designed to use only paper or fabric so that they could be completed at home during lockdown. This pilot study demonstrated that involving primary school students in biomedical learning activities can foster leadership, improve presentation skills, encourage pupil-led research and stimulate interest in science at a very young age.
