Online science course for home educated childrenOur next course of online home ed science sessions starts on the 1st October 2020 and is aimed at home educated children aged 5-9. Sessions run at 11am weekly on Thursdays. This course will be run via Zoom and you will need a computer to access the sessions. A webcam is desirable but not essential and your child does not have to be on camera. Just £7 per session and £3 for each additional sibling. This price includes a box of equipment sent to you to be used in each session (1 box per child).

These 45 minute home ed science sessions are run by a highly trained scientist and provide children with an opportunity to socialise whilst learning. Sharing results is a key part of scientific research and these sessions will encourage collaboration.


The price for a block of five sessions is £35 for the first child. Additional siblings are welcome to share a screen and work on the activities with their own box of equipment and there is an additional total cost of £15 per additional sibling for the additional kit. All sessions will be recorded so that you can access the session even if you are unavailable at the time of the session. We are also on hand for help and support between sessions too.

This club will be strictly limited to 15 screens so that every child gets the most out of the club.

Session 1 – 11am – 12th November – Energy and forces – This session is perfect for energetic children! They will be exploring forces and energy and making a strange balancing toy and wind-up car, testing an energy-storing jumping popper and more. Expect balloons flying everywhere!

Session 2 – 11am – 19th November – Senses – This week is all about our senses. Children will be learning all about braille and making their own braille picture. They will also be tricking their eyes and finding out how their sense of touch is more sensitive in some parts of the body than others. Children will also be making their own secret decoder to create and decode secret messages.

Session 3 – 11am – 26th November – Materials – This week is all about interesting materials. Children will be exploring a range of smart materials including a UV reactive material, and a hydrophobic material. They will also be seeing how to make a really strong bridge and growing a super-absorbent animal.

Session 4 – 11am – 3rd December – Planets and space – In this session we are blasting off into space and making a planet mobile to hang in your window! Children will learn about the relative distances of the planets and their order as they craft and create their own hanging planet display. They will also be discovering what happened after the big bang, and the phases of the moon plus making their own constellation projector.

Session 5 – 11am – 10th December – Dinosaurs – This week children will be becoming palaeontologists as they excavate fossils and investigate dinosaur poo! They will also be creating dinosaur footprints to throw other palaeontologists off the scent and finding out the characteristics of their own dinosaur.
