Teachers give us outstanding reviews saying:
"We would recommend these workshops without hesitation”.
"Thank you for helping us to make our brilliant bubbling bath bombs! Love from Class 3"
"Thank you for our wonderful and exciting day."
Science is a voyage of exploration and discovery. It requires careful observations, fair testing and objective reasoning. Science is often a subject that primary teachers are less confident in teaching. It also requires specialist resources and takes time to prepare good interesting lessons. Working Science attempts to overcome this gap in knowledge and resources with our science workshops.
Our science workshops allow children to try hands on investigations to stimulate questioning and kinaesthetic learning in a safe controlled environment.
We provide science experiences that complement and extend the learning of science in the National Curriculum at KS1 and KS2. Pupils can investigate solar power, wind power, make batteries from potatoes and experiment with static electricity and commercial circuit boards. Our Workshops cover the topics of light, electricity and materials using scientific investigation techniques, fair tests and reasoning.
We have prepared a range of science workshops that have been tested in schools and have be found to be stimulating and enjoyable. They allow children to extend their learning by exploring equipment and using real world science examples that they would not usually see to anchor science concepts.
The teachers we meet are often just as excited as the children to find out how our experiments work. Often we hear that they learned something new from our workshops, which has increased their confidence for teaching science.
Our science workshops allow children to try ‘hands-on’ science to stimulate questioning and kinaesthetic learning in a safe controlled environment.
We have also developed and trialled a Primary Science CPD Session for primary school teachers to increase confidence with the teaching of science subjects and to provide ideas for equipment and exciting science investigations in class.
We also provide science parties for children from ages 6-10 (near Tunbridge Wells and South London), with rockets, slime, ice cream making and other activities.
Engages children to with facts about the planets, comets, meteorites, stars, black holes and galaxies.
Teaches children about rockets, launching into space, the space shuttle, living in space, the ISS, and NASA and ESA missions to the moon and Mars
