Building a Resilient Brain
Versions for Ages 7-14 | KS2, KS3
Explore the science of resilience and mental health self-care techniques, in an engaging, hands-on and age appropriate way. For KS2 we look at how to control the emotions and talk about your feelings, while with KS3 we add topics like dealing with stress and anxiety at school and introduce common mental health conditions such as depression.
Hands-on Science Workshops
Seeing is believing! Astound young minds with science fun, experiments and illusions that highlight their amazing brains in action. Available live in-person, online or as a package with our science shows for schools, these interactive science workshops are great for smaller groups - perhaps as part of an end of term science class or a fun science club. Or Building a Resilient Brain is perfect for a wellbeing week or PSHE lessons focused on mental health and wellbeing. They typically run for 30-45mins to suit your timetable, or can be extended to an hour with Q&A and we always tailor the content for the target age group.
Thank you so much for coming down to do the science shows for us. Everyone had an amazing time and we would definitely love to have you back again.
