Science and STEM Workshops for school groups

Interactive Workshops Making Science Fun!

Science Maths Computing

Science Workshops for schools can last from 45 minutes to a full day. If you are bringing a workshop provider in to cover multiple classes, the cost per pupil is reduced making the day even better value for money. A Science Workshop day can start with a group assembly and a demonstration or two to get your pupils excited. Workshops can then visit different classrooms to run tailor-made workshops for a variety of key stages.

Science workshops are a fabulous way to get your primary school class excited about STEM subjects. Professional and experienced demonstrators use inspiring workshops to teach a wide range of science topics in a safe and controlled way. Exciting experiments and interactive investigations help pupils see the practical applications of science in our everyday lives. Teach them how fun science can be by letting them loose with lots of hands-on activities and engaging equipment that will spark their imaginations.

Discover a range of tailor made workshops covering themes like, Space and Planetariums, dinosaurs, non-newtonian fluids, sound waves, extreme temperatures, electrical circuits, the human body and plenty of problem solving activities from physics to maths.

The feedback we have received from school teachers who have booked a science workshop is consistently oozing praise - their pupils are so engaged and inspired. To find out how you can link science workshops to the KS1 and KS2 curriculum, take a look at the biology, chemistry, physics and STEM workshop providers below or fill in the short enquiry form and let us help you get your class excited about science.

Short on time? We can help!

Let us find the perfect Science workshop to visit your school.
