What do we do?

Through interactive discussions and exciting hands on activities, our camps instill a clearer understanding of how science affects the world around us.  We encourage the children to be inquisitive and ask searching questions.  And of course, we have fun!  Our camps take place during the school holidays between 9.30am and 3.30pm (plus optional wrap around care between 8am - 5.30pm if required) and are suitable for children between the ages of 5 - 11 years old.

All of our presenters are DBS (previously known as CRB) checked. A peadiactric first aid qualified practitioner will be on site at all times.
