Workshops & Science Days

We have the time, equipment, resources and science background to host a science day or club at your school or community group.

You’ll receive engaging hands-on science activities to enrich your lessons, and enthuse your pupils.

Science workshops are themed around the curriculum covering topics in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Engineering, including specialist subjects such as Forensic Science and Microbiology or science from literature such as Roald Dahl and Harry Potter.

We can do whole school all day events, or spend the morning with one class or year group – its entirely up to you!

At many of our events the children make something to take home, this could be a pot of slime, a vibro-bot or a designer microbe!

Use the form below to get in touch to get the ball rolling for your next science day.


Prices start from £200 for half a day and £300 for a full day of super-fun, supervised scientific schooling.

Price includes resources & equipment, teachers & travel costs up to a radius of 20 miles from our head office in Barnstaple, North Devon.
