What is the ideal age for the science club?

Our clubs are suitable for primary school aged girls and boys, from 7 to 12 years. Every club session is uniquely tailored to each age group by the Flash Bang Scientist to ensure the best learning environment for everyone.

 

Does my child need to bring anything along?

No! The science kits are designed to have everything we need to run the club and in some sessions there is a ‘make-and-take’ activity for all the children to complete and take home. We request that our students do not bring food into the classroom for health and safety reasons. In our holiday workshops food should be left in students bags until the tutor gives the all clear for break times.

 

How many children can come to the science club?

We design and limit our classes size to small numbers of 8 – 12 pupils to ensure our students have our full attention.

 

What happens if more than 12 children want to come to the science club?

A maximum class size of 12 children is adhered to in order to maintain the adult to child ratio at a suitable level and to provide a safe environment for all children. If more than 12 children have registered for the club, we will start a waiting list with the intention of running a second class if possible.

 

Who is the scientific investigator that will come to run the club?

Sue is our Chief Scientific Investigator. She has always had a passion for ‘all things science’ and helped to create the Flash Bang Science Club after spotting that there was nowhere else around for her equally scientifically-minded son to attend. Sue is also a tutor with Young at Art and is well known for not shying away from some of the messier projects and experiments – in fact I think she picks those projects deliberately!
