After School Science Club

In Chester, Northwich, Runcorn and surrounding areas.
Fun Science after school club

We offer a range of action packed after school science clubs for primary school aged pupils aged 5-11. Each programme is taught for an hour a week by a highly trained Fun Scientist in a room on site at your school. These programmes are also suitable for home education groups.

How does it work?

Step 1 – Book one of our free assemblies to meet the scientist who would be running your club and see just how much children love our practical style of STEM learning! (Click here to find out more about our free assemblies!)

Step 2 – Decide which day you would like to run the club on – We are able to run clubs Monday – Friday (subject to availability) for one key stage or for the whole school. If you would like to run two clubs simultaneously or on different days just ask!

Step 3 – We will create and print letters to send home to parents to let them know the science after school club is happening. A scientist will drop these off to your school office in groups of 30 or we can email them to you to be added to your clubs list, whichever suits you best.

Step 4 – Parents book online – Our online booking system makes it easy for parents to book directly with us and means there is no extra work for the office staff/teachers needing to collect forms. Parents without access to a computer can call us to book if needed. As long as the minimum number of 8 children is reached we will email you a register so you know exactly who is enrolled onto the science club. If the minimum number is not reached we will redistribute payments to any parents who have applied and there will be no charge to parents/the school.

Step 5 – Your scientist will return to run the club! All we need is a room with enough chairs for each pupil or space for the children to sit on the floor. A classroom works best but we can use a hall or other space if needed. We will be flexible and fit around you and your space.

All schools considering hosting our STEMafter school programme are eligible for a free assembly with no hidden charges and no obligation to host the programme afterwards.

Fun Science after school clubHow much does it cost?

Fun Science after school clubs are paid for by parents and the cost is £6 per session, booked in blocks of 5 or 10 (or another number to fit in with your club system). This cost pays for our highly trained scientist but also a range of exciting hands on equipment for children and children will usually get something to take home with them after the session as well so they can share what they have learned with their grownups.
