Several papers have highlighted the potential of network science to appeal to a younger audience of high school children and provided lesson material on network science for high school children. However, network science also provides a great topic for outreach activities for primary school children. Therefore, this article gives a short summary of an outreach activity on network science for primary school children aged 8–12 years. The material provided in this article contains presentation material for a lesson of approximately 1 hour, including experiments, exercises, and quizzes, which can be used by other scientists interested in popularizing network science. We then discuss the lessons learned from this material.
