What we'll do

We are delighted to be part of the Brighton Science Festival October 2022. Join me for Sensory Science where every child can do every step of every experiment and activity. Children will (we hope!) see this workshop as: ⭐ Fun making their own fidget spinner, testing out different designs and finding out what is inside bearings and why we use them in everyday life. ⭐ A chance to get messy making slime that they design and create from scratch weighing, measuring and mixing their ingredients. Parents will see this workshop as: ⭐ A way to stimulate their child's brain to build nerve connections within the neural pathways. This improves sensory processing, coordination and both fine and gross motor skills. ⭐ A chance to let their child experiment, fidget, have fun and create a mess that they won’t be scraping off the walls and carpet for the next few weeks. ⭐ The opportunity to let their children learn the science behind the fun in a simple, accessible way.

Victoria Bharj·On a mission to bring science to life for children
I have enjoyed over 20 years' experience of teaching, tutoring and educating and it is a real privilege to be part of any student’s learning journey. I believe it is as important to build a person's confidence and resilience as it is to help them learn a skill. Children learn when they're having fun. I want to provide a rich environment where everyone can learn at their own pace. My biggest achievement is not my formal qualifications, but having taught my own children at home. All three are now in their 20s and make me proud every day.

Suitable for

Suitable for children aged around 5-12. Children must be accompanied by an adult - this is not a drop-off session. Accompanying adults - free of charge.

Learning aims
