SciTech has been astounding children (and their parents!) for 25 years. It is the concept of a local children’s science presenter, Philip Rose. “Being dyslexic I know how to present science to all children including dyslexics - to understand science you have to do it!”
SciTech mixes a blend of amazing children with amazing high-tech equipment such as ultrasound scanners, surgical microscopes, thermal imaging cameras and even a Mercedes Formula One racing car! Most of the staff were once children on the courses themselves and for some, so were their parents! At a SciTech event approximately 85% of the children will have been to at least one other event before. “We must be doing something right, they keep coming back!”
The courses are for children from 5 – 12. Our 5 – 6 year olds operate in a group specially designed for them.
The courses run for a week in the summer holidays and a 3 day period at Easter where children can opt for 1, 2 or 3 days. This Easter the courses are ‘Cool Science’, ‘Paper’ and ‘Jelly & Slime’. There are still a few places left for the Easter course. An announcement about our summer programme will be made here shortly.
