At Mini Professors we are passionate about science and we aim to inspire a generation. Our theme tune’s opening line is ‘Science is all around us’ and this reflects the ethos of our lessons. We feel that all children have a great thirst for learning from a young age and therefore, should be given every opportunity to develop and learn new skills and wonder at the world around them
We believe that science should be accessible to all. As with any language, children can easily absorb and learn from an early age. That is why we endeavour not to dumb down scientific terminology but explain scientific principles in simple terms with fun experiments. We encourage our Mini Professors to explore for themselves and interact as much as possible.
The Mini Professors classes provide a warm and welcoming environment in which children can not only explore and marvel at science but we also encourage many life skills, such as asking and answering questions, turn taking, sharing and socialising.
Science is the key to our future. As a country, we are looked upon more and more as a centre of excellence for science and engineering. These skills need to be nurtured from an early age so that we can compete as a nation with the best in the world.
‘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.
