We are passionate about science and we aim to inspire a new generation to be curious through our interactive classes.
Our theme tune’s opening line is ‘Science is all around us’, this reflects the ethos of the classes and encourages the children to think about and to explore the world around them.
Children have a thirst for knowledge and can understand scientific principles explained in simple terms with fun experiments in which they can touch, see and hear to help them understand.
We love it when the children interact in the classes, it is a very hand’s on experience – learning through play.
‘Science is very important. It’s undervalued and underinvested in and it’s a force for extreme good in education, in society and economically.’ Professor Brian Cox.
