What we'll do

We are delighted to be part of the Brighton Science Festival October 2022. Learn about what happens when we sneeze in this interactive workshop for children who love experiments. There are no worksheets or copying from the board, so the session is suitable for all children, regardless of ability. Children learn when they are engaged and having fun. What could be more fun than artificial mucus and fake noses? We make human biology accessible to all with a range of hands-on experiments to encourage children's natural curiosity. Join us to find out more about the fascinating story of what goes on under our skin and up our noses. We will be investigating: ** how pathogens are spread by sneezes; ** how we can minimise airborne transmission; ** how our body fights infection. We will be harnessing children's love of all things gross to feed their enquiring minds. If you've ever wondered why we say "Achoo!" when we sneeze, then this is the workshop for you (and your children!).

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.
