All of our Science, Engineering, Technology and Mathematics (STEM) workshops cover topics in the national curriculum. The design of the workshops means that we can deliver them in school classrooms. We aim to encourage students to become scientists, engineers, and problem solvers.

We can tailor workshops to your requirements. Submit an enquiry or emails us at [email protected]

Why Choose Us

STEM Workshops

Our STEM workshops have gone through many months worth of iterations and trials in schools. It has helped to make sure our workshops run smoothly on the day. We have worked very hard to make sure the content of each workshop directly relates to aspects of the curriculum, hence enriching the education experience already taught at school.

Furthermore, our science workshops for schools are available in different versions which means that we can deliver content that is suitable for both primary and secondary school children, as well as sixth form students.

The students will also receive hands-on experience in science and engineering, as all our workshops contain practical elements. We will guarantee that the students will take away a great deal of knowledge at the end of our workshops. Our workshops are available anywhere in the UK for schools and STEM events.

STEM Days for Schools

We can work together with the school to put on a STEM day to cover up to 180 students in a day. During a typical event day, we will do a combination of science workshops followed by a school STEAM assembly.

Science Events

We have used years of public speaking experience to develop our speaking engagements. When it comes to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) we can engage children during our talks like no one else. For example, when we talk about forces and motion, we throw in a back-flip, or we can showcase break-dance windmills or robot moves. We can also incorporate various mini science demonstrations into our shows.

We have different versions of our presentations which we can deliver to different age groups. Moreover, we can deliver higher-level science engagements at conferences and education festivals covering topics such as sustainability and climate change.

Students and guests will leave the engagement entertained with inspiration and knowledge.

We end all our school engagements with a dance performance!
