This clubs is now FULLY BOOKED and this page is for information only. Our Cheltenham branch is running an identical course and this is open to children across the UK (not just Gloucestershire). Click here to find out more.

Alternatively, please email bath@fun-science.org.uk to register your interest for our next course. You may also be interested in our online coding course for children aged 7-12.

Our next course of online home ed science sessions starts on the 2nd March 2021 and is aimed at home educated children aged 5-11. Sessions run at 10am-10.45 weekly on Tuesdays. 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 primary science sessions are run online 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 and sharing ideas.

Session 1 – 2nd March – Forces – This session will include making a kite that can fly indoors and a (safe) explosion or two!

Session 2 – 9th March – Robotics – Children will be making their own electrical, moving, mini-robot and learning about circuits, motion and forces.

Session 3 – 16th March – Forensics – We will be working like detectives to explore different forensic techniques, including searching for fingerprints, analysing samples and conducting and ink analysis through chromatography. Children will be working together to solve a crime using their newly learn forensic techniques.

Session 4  – 23rd March – The Earth – We will be exploring deep below the surface to make a model earth, experimenting with rock formation and even learning about volcanoes!

Session 5 – 30th March – Bubbles – In our final session, children will be feeling bubbly with a few fizzing chemical reactions and lots of bubble-related science.


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.
