Following the Government’s lockdown rules, our children’s science events & workshops have moved online for now, including these free science workshops during the Easter holidays….and we hope to be back running events in person sometime after Easter (details to follow).
We run FREE science workshops – found on this page – as well as
Free Easter Science
Check out our FREE science workshops for ages 4-9 this Easter Holiday below.
30 minutes of fun educational science in the morning, one at 10am and another at 11am, during the week of 12th to 16th April in the Easter Holidays.
Each session has a short introduction, and families make the experiment below live with us. The sessions are very interactive and there is time throughout for questions, we will also help troubleshoot if something isn’t quite working.
Spaces are limited, so please book your slot below and we’ll send you the Zoom link and a kit list reminder by email.
Please note: the Zoom link will be found in your Reminder Email which is sent the day before the workshop.
All these sessions are free, but you are welcome to donate to our Fun & Free Science For All campaign, to enable us to continue to run free sessions throughout 2021 for all children in the UK.
