Online LIVE Science Clubs

We’re passionate about helping children learn the wonders of science through practical, hands-on activities. No boring teaching here! That’s why we deliver a science kit to your door for our live, online science clubs, so that your budding scientist can become immersed in an interactive sciencedipity session. 


Next intake – end Sept

Only £39 per family

includes the kit delivered!


More kits needed? – no problem

If there are siblings, they can either share a kit or you can have additional kits for £10 each. These are available to order on the booking page, when you go to book.



What are these online science clubs?!

Suitable for ages 5-11.

Fizz & Popp, Inventors or Horrid Science themes to choose from.

Each session is live via Zoom, is 1 hour long, and the clubs are for 4 weeks (so 4 x 1 hour sessions).

Online support via private FB group.

Certificated (British Science Association’s Crest Award – optional).

Only £39 per family includes the kit delivered via Royal Mail’s Signed For service. Image and details of kits below.

£10 per additional kit (e.g. for siblings – optional).

The club is led by our scientist & teacher, Ruth (yes – an actual real scientist!).

The groups are kept small (up to 12 screens), so Ruth can ensure your youngster is engaged and involved throughout.

    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.

    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

    Many thanks for your amazing lessons! They are so good at inspiring young scientists and introducing scientific concepts in a fun way.

    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.
