Our Science Club uses the Royal Institution ExpeRImental investigations to develop thinking and talking through science.
After each Science Club children will be able to extend their learning. Click here to link to the videos on the ExpeRImental website and continue your learning at home.
ExpeRimental is a series of short films that make it fun, easy and cheap to do science at home with children aged 4 to 10. Our films give you lots of ideas for kids’ activities that will help you explore the world around you, question and experiment together. We’ll show you how to do the activity and how to make sure adults and children get the most out of it. Tell us how you get on and share your photos and any funny things your kids say!
Each activity is designed to be easy to do using only common household objects. Simply playing, watching closely, and asking questions is enough to light a spark of science learning at home with young children. All the experiments are about encouraging natural curiosity and investigating the wonders of science while you play.
We think doing hands-on activities with children is the best way to get them exploring the world around them and thinking like future scientists and engineers. You won’t need any existing science knowledge to be able carry out and enjoy ExpeRimental activities. Alongside each film is an info sheet with all the extra information you might need, including a clear explanation of the science at work and some ideas of questions to ask while playing
