Mini Professors Durham



Welcome to Mini Professors Durham!

Mini Professors Durham brings a different science theme each week with two hands-on experiments, props and photos, a video and a story. Classes are suitable for 2-5 year olds, and cover over 80 different topics from dinosaurs to blood and the Solar System to chemical reactions. Our aim is to make science fun for little ones and hopefully inspire the next generation of scientists.



I am delighted to announce that, after over 5 months of online-only classes, we are now opening bookings for our first face-to-face classes at indoor venues! You can find us on a Tuesday morning at Bee Happy Play Cafe in Peterlee, a Thursday morning at Croxdale Community Centre and alternate Saturday mornings at Croxdale Community Centre too.

These classes are only open to a limited number of people per class to allow for social distancing. Children will receive their own set of clean equipment to join in with the experiments during the class. The cost of these classes is £7 per child, siblings can join half price using the code SIBLINGHALF when booking!

Please visit our About the Classes page to read more about the changes to our venue-based classes and some points to note before attending.



Our Mini Professors @home classes are also available for you to book below. Join us via Zoom from the comfort of your own home to join in with our online, interactive and fun science classes. 

Aimed at 2-7 year olds, our online classes cover a different science theme each week. Our online classes follow the same format as our face-to-face classes and include 2 experiments your little one can join in with at home using equipment found around the house (think balloons, straws, vinegar, spoons, etc.) Classes also include a story and bespoke video related to that topic.

After booking, you will receive a link via email with the invitation to the Zoom meeting, as well as equipment to collect from around your home to take part in the experiments.

Classes are £4 per class when booked as a term, or £5 pay as you go. If you are a new customer, you can book a 2 week trial for just £4! Only one booking is needed per household, although you may want to collect multiple sets of equipment for siblings! Older siblings are more than welcome to join in too. 

"Our two year old has done the online term and absolutely loved it! All the tasks were using everyday items and are very straightforward to do at home. Definitely recommend."


Did you know you can also book a science party with us? Suitable for 3-7 year olds and great for birthdays, weddings or any other celebration. Choose from three themes- Crazy ChemicalsAmazing Air or Marvellous Magic. Contact us for more details.


We can also provided classes for your school or nursery too! Whether it's online or face-to-face, a one-off special class or something more regular, contact for more details.
