Science Workshops

Fun, educational hands on science delivered on a class, year or whole school basis, across the UK. These are ideal for Science Weeks and Days.

  • Practical and Memorable Science
  • Flexibility and Choice - Each class can do a different workshop
  • Tailored for a range of ages and abilities
  • Strong reputation for professional and engaging delivery

Science Club STEMBOX

Practical support and resources for those who want to set up a science club, or run one off science activities. We make it easy to get started:

  • Complete set of resources and great teaching notes
  • Wide choice of experiments
  • You choose how and when to deliver
  • Resources delivered and collected
  • Teacher only events offered

After School Science Clubs

We run weekly After School Primary Science clubs for our partner schools.These are designed to inspire and enthuse boys and girls of all abilities and learning styles:

  • Tailored experiments,for all ages and abilities
  • Practical science - safe, supervised and exciting
  • Beat the Scientist
  • Investigator Awards

Challenge Activities

Inspiring practical STEM activities for older pupils at Key Stages 3 and 4. They are designed to help develop team working and a range of scientific skills. An inspiring one off activity - though we take many repeated bookings from schools - either for the same or a new Challenge:

  • We can cover a whole year group in a day
  • Great way to inspire pupils to careers in Science and Engineering
  • Great post exam and end of term activities
  • Develops team work and a range of scientific skills
