What we'll do

We are delighted to be part of the Brighton Science Festival October 2022. Hands-on Experiments to bring science to life. ⚡ Learn about the electricity within the human body. Find out how we use it to operate some of our favourite electrical devices – smartphones, tablets, iPads and touchscreens. We take apart the tech to show you what is inside. ⚡ Why can’t you use your smartphone when you’re wearing gloves? Get hands-on and discover for yourself. ⚡ What is static electricity? Why is it sometimes good and sometimes bad? Enjoy more experiments to learn all about it. We make complex science simple enough for all ages and abilities. Think levitation is just for Harry Potter? Think again!

Children who do not flourish in a traditional classroom setting are often the most talented at problem solving, but their intelligence is not always recognised. In our STEM workshops, every child is free to offer ideas and opinions, think differently, make mistakes, start again. STEM helps children to develop: * Critical thinking * Problem solving * Effective communica...
