Fun Science After School Programmes

 No Comments
We offer a five week, action packed scientific after school programme run within your school for your pupils aged 5-11. This programme is taught for an hour a week by a highly trained Fun Scientist and is available for all schools up to 35 miles from Bath. 

Why Fun Science?

-          -We are a member of the British Science Association which ensures that all our activities promote involvement in STEM subjects.

-          - Our scientists have received science communication training from the Wellcome Trust and Bath Spa University and child protection training from the local authority.

-          - Children love being taught by a ‘real scientist’, complete with a lab coat and science name.

-          - Our extensive inventory of equipment, including two Van de Graff generators, three different rockets and a wide range of laboratory equipment enables us to provide an experience that goes above and beyond every day teaching.

-          - Our programmes complement the national curriculum.

-          - The programme has been run successfully in many schools and we have received very positive feedback from teachers, parents and pupils.

-          - Fun Science has public liability insurance, all staff are CRB/DBS checked and all activities are risk assessed and safe for the ages they are delivered to.

-          - We recently won the Bath Spa business plan award for best educational enterprise.

What will it cost your school?

-          - The programme is run after school time and so is charged to parents at just £6 per hour-long session (£30 for the entire 5 week course). Feedback from previous courses has shown that parents find this great value for money.

-          - All we require from you is a room with access to water and for you to distribute our leaflets.

-          - The minimum number of children needed for the programme to run is 8 and the maximum number we can accept is 20. If the programme is not popular and less than 8 pupils sign up there will be no cost to the school.

-          - If parents are not happy with the service after the first week we offer a full money back guarantee.

Still not convinced?

Despite our great reviews we understand that schools would rather see for themselves how good we are. This is why we are offering free assemblies to all schools considering running an after school programme. This gives you a chance to see what we can do and meet the scientist who would be running your programme. If, after the assembly, you decide not to proceed with running the programme there is still nothing to pay. Click here to learn more about our free assemblies.
