PRIMARY SCHOOL SCIENCE
Would you like yourself or your school to run a regular science club featuring Vet School, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Innovation - taught using experiments, games, teamwork and design with some drama thrown in for good measure?
(My son) "thoroughly enjoys the sessions each week, and is always keen to complete the sheets that he brings home - he finds the weekly topics fascinating - thank you." Parent of pupil attending Cropredy Church of England School, Cropredy, Oxfordshire

Our ART is in SPACE!
In the Spring of 2016, ScienceClubz students joined with other students across the world in producing art about asteroids and space and the origins of our life on Earth. ScienceClubz digitised this art and submitted it to NASA to be loaded on to a chip inside the spacecraft and taken to the Asteroid, Bennu, where it will remain for thousands of years. Nasa confirmed receipt of our submission and on the 8th September 2016, the rocket launching OSIRIS REx successfully launched from Cape Canaveral, along with our chip! Awesome!

We believe that kids learning science should be shown techniques to unleash their creativity - then will we have future scientists who can dream up innovative solutions to our worlds challenges. Go on, get your kids to do some creative writing this week!
Our students start with a text book image of little green men, and then show an impressive ability to look at real evidence and re-evaluate their perspectives.
Take eight pupils in years Reception to Year 3, give them some
inspiration and ten minutes later get an amazing little short story...
My two girls love ScienceClubz, they find the topics very interesting and it is relevant for both 6 year and 10 year
olds - they even enjoy doing the homework (!), it has truly enhanced their learning. I find the parents/home notes particularly useful as this helps me understand what they have
covered, provide help where necessary and build upon anything they want to know more about. The girls said the lab coats and safety glasses they wear when doing something practical make them
feel like a real scientist. The whole experience has given them a true passion for Science - thank you.

The Science of Smell
A number of intrepid junior scientists had a bash at the perfume design challenge and engineered their own creations. If you look closely - the ingredients of one can be seen in the photo - try it yourself - it smells fantastic - Roll over Chanel No. 5!
Who would have thought that when asked "Who wants to look at a dead mackerel?" the whole class would say "YES!" and pretty much all of them got hands-on to feel the feathery gills of this amazing fish. The surface area needs to be large so the gills can get out the 1% or so of dissolved Oxygen from the water. Take a look at the short film snippet to see how and why it needs to use only DISSOLVED Oxygen!
