Home Education Groups

Home education science sessions in Somerset

Our weekly home education groups are currently paused due to Covid-19 but we are running some online sessions and a chemistry course in Bath instead. Please see below for details of our usual groups and our online sessions. 

Fun Science Bath runs hands on science sessions for home educated children in Keynsham, Taunton, Calne, Shrewton, and Swindon. Activities are influenced by what the children want to study and past topics have included chemical reactions, space, explosions, the human body, gravity and much more.

New venues

If you are a home educator based up to 20 miles from Bath and you are looking for regular hands on science sessions for your child/children then we would love to hear from you! All we need is a group of at least 12 curious children and a venue (either a home or a hired hall) then we will provide everything else. We will then work with you and your children to come up with topics and activities to suit them. For more information email bath@fun-science.org.uk
