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!
