Engaging School Workshops UK

Creative workshops in your classroom

Enrich your class topics with engaging school workshops that will really inspire young children. Experts in the subject areas you are studying can bring innovative learning through everything from theatre to problem solving. Creative topics that are thought provoking and sure to get your pupils enthusiastic about the subjects you are teaching.

Although you can work with the workshop provider to tailor the experience for your pupils, all you need to do is provide the space, whether that is the classroom, or a school hall. The specific resources and planning are taken care of for you, freeing up your time, and simply allowing the children to enjoy the experience.

Some workshops only operate locally, but most can visit all UK regions. We have indicated on the workshops below how far they will travel. To find more inspiring workshops for the following subjects, please view the following pages:

JuniorSTEM Lego Robotics



In a JuniorSTEM workshops your pupils will build amazing Robotic Lego WeDo models then learn to program sensors, motors and lights to bring them to life. Extremely engaging, packed full of learning and loads of fun.

A JuniorSTEM workshop is very easy to organise. Phone or email us with some possible dates and we will send you a quote and our availability. We try to respond within a couple of hours. Many schools use us instead of a trip and ask the kids for a small voluntary contribution or ask their PTA to fund our workshops. This works well as the children go home excited about what they have done and tell there parents about it. JuniorSTEM workshops take place at your school - no need for expensive coaches. We have workshops for Y1 to Y8 (We can bring some big boxes Lego for Reception children). We can take up to 32 children in a session working in pairs*. Full or half days are best but we can run 3 or 4 shorter sessions in a day. The activities are classroom based so no need to disrupt...
