Saturday Science Club

What is Saturday Science Club?

Saturday Science Club is an exciting opportunity for children to explore an aspect of science in a friendly and safe environment. Within the workshops the children are grouped, so that they are working with others of similar age. The same subject will be studied in all workshops, although the material will be adapted to meet the needs of the children.


The workshops are all at either 10.00 or 11.30, unless otherwise specified.

Saturday 19th September: Why do we need butterflies?

This workshop investigates the relationships between different organisms, and why we need them.

Saturday 17th October: What are magnets?

 During this workshop we explore the properties of magnets, and how they affect the world around us.

Saturday 21st November: Colourful chemistry!

Chemistry is responsible for the colours we see around us. This workshop considers how we use chemistry to brighten up our world.


What does a workshop entail?

Each workshop is an hour long, during which we explore the subject through specially designed experiments and activities. Results, observations and thoughts are recorded in custom made lab books. Parent sheets are provided, and sometimes it will be possible for the children to take their experimental equipment home to continue their learning and exploration.


A child’s first workshop costs £2.50. Each workshop there after costs £5. For more details, please contact me.


The workshops will take place in The Elephant House, 1 Dean Street, Bedminster, BS3 1BG. It is situated opposite the Bristol South swimming pool, on the corner of Dean Lane and Dean Street. Parking immediately outside the venue is difficult, but there is plenty of nearby on-street parking, or a small free car park nearby on Cannon Street. Alternatively, the venue is close to the 24, 25, 75, 76 and 77 bus routes.


Places are limited, to ensure that all children get the most out of their experiences. To reserve a place, please fill in the form below – I will contact you to confirm your place.
