  • We will also need a screen to connect to our laptop.

  • We will provide all the materials needed for the workshop, but if you are able to supply scissors and colouring supplies, that would be very helpful.

  • Interactive and engaging science workshops for schools

  • Fabulous presenters with a background in brain science

  • Rave reviews from teachers, students and top science festivals


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.
