About

Family Masterclasses are aimed at children aged 7–12 with their families, but older students and adults are welcome. These workshops are designed to get families together to explore science in a fun and interactive manner. Please note, there must be at least one paying adult attending with each booking.

Holiday Workshops are for students only, and offer hands on experiences with science, and a chance for students to expand their knowledge and learn outside the school curriculum in an interactive, engaging environment.
