We hold separate sessions for 2 and 3 year olds and 3 to 5 year olds. Every class is different, with a completely new and exciting scientific topic each week. This means you can attend for 2 years and experience something new each week! We cover everything from volcanoes to dinosaurs, maths to tropical rainforests and much more.
Our Mini Professors get to wear their own lab coats and learn about the basic principles of scientific experimentation, whilst having loads of fun and generally getting stuck in.
A typical class starts with our Mini Professors 'Welcome Song', followed by an introduction to today's topic, using pictures and props, then our first experiment or activity, where we encourage all our Mini Professors and their grown ups to join in (and maybe get messy!). Next we have a short video made especially for the Mini Professors programme, related to the scientific topic, then a story followed by another fantastic science experiment or activity. At the end of the lesson we summarise what we've learnt and end with the Mini Professors 'Goodbye Song' and children are given stickers.
Each Mini Professors session lasts 40 minutes and follows a set format so the children know what to expect next. All the activities are concise and interactive, catering for the many different learning styles and keeping the little ones’ attention!
The children love to get involved in the experiments and activities and it is a great opportunity to prepare them for preschool and school, developing their skill sets and sparking a love for science and learning. Young children are so enthusiastic about science – they have inquisitive minds and they are not afraid to ask questions.
We encourage the grown ups to join in too and carry on the learning experience at home with their children!
