Testimonials

  • Laura, Yorkshire
    Thank you so much to the team at Sciencedipity. My girls absolutely love science and the online classes have definitely made this aspect of home educating fun and accessible. Tha k you so much and can't wait to get involved with more science
    Laura, Yorkshire
  • Franny, Mid Devon
    Thank you, Ruth, for your seriously inspiring online science sessions. My two kids spent many days afterwards re-creating the experiments in different ways - thanks to the excellent equipment kits you sent in the post. It's brilliant how you teach them the scientific principles behind the fun stuff, they love going on to apply those principles in other situations. They have learned so much and we will definitely be back for more.

  • Angela, Plymouth
    Each session had three really fun and engaging activities, well taught and explained. None of the activities were “duds” or time fillers and my daughter was inspired to follow up each session with further investigation. The sessions were well priced and we are sad they have come to an end
    Angela, Plymouth
  • Joanna, Online Clubs
    Many thanks for your amazing lessons! They are so good at inspiring young scientists and introducing scientific concepts in a fun way.
    Joanna, Online Clubs
  • Beth, Online
    Absolutely fantastic online classes. My 5yo looks forward to them every week and it has really fed his love of science and provided lots more avenues for him to explore in his own time. The kits are always well organised and the little added treats make it that bit more special and exciting for young children to receive.
