What are these self-paced clubs all about?

Everyone can enjoy hands-on science with these self-paced virtual clubs where we send you the kit and you get access to all the lessons! 

Choose from: Chemistry Science, Horrid Science & Inventors Science 

These are perfect alternatives to our live online clubs. The content is the same as the live clubs, but they’re just not live!

+ Suitable for ages 5-11 with parent supervision.

+ We send you the kit, so you don’t have to gather the materials, we’ve done that for you!

+ Clubs are eligible towards the Childrens University passports.

+ Youngsters can work towards the British Science Association’s CREST Award (£5 to register, need to complete 8 of your own experiments inspired by the ones in the clubs, email us on [email protected] for more info)

+ Tutorials are pre-recorded for you to watch when it suits you, providing you with step by step guides to carry out the experiment plus the science theory behind the activity.

+ When you’re ready for a science lesson, just grab the kit and follow along!

    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

    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.
