Workshops and after school clubs

Discovery Bug workshops offer unique and educational science

activities to groups of curious kids (schools, youth club,

holiday programme, Scouts, Brownies etc) using a combination

of demonstrations and interactive experiments that will get

children inspired and excited! We can also come to your school

and offer a science club after school for your pupils - for as

many weeks as suits the school.

Many of the topics covered link in with KS1/KS2 topics,and can

be even be extended to KS3 topics. If you have a particular

subject you would like covered, Discovery Bugs can work

with you to design and deliver a unique programme.






Here are just some examples of some of the sessions we can offer, either through daytime workshops or after school science club at your school:
