Sens-ational Science Club...Online
Join me for an interactive 6 week exploration of our senses, the human brain, and the tricks you can play on them, in my brand new online science club for 7-11 year olds.
Think you see with your eyes and taste with your tongue? Prepare to be amazed, confounded and confused as your kids find out that senses aren’t as simple as they seem…and even discover some senses they never knew they had. You never know, you might even learn something yourself!
I have developed 6 sessions, each involving an introduction video (with demos) and a try-it-at-home worksheet to give your scientists-in-training the chance to explore their senses in more detail. The sessions are designed to be done once a week for 6 weeks, but feel free to use the resources however works best for you and your family.
I can't wait to share my passion and get more kids interested in the amazing world of brain science!
What you need
Some basic materials- paper, scissors, thin card, colouring pencils etc. I have tried to keep it to things you are likely to have around the house. You can download a full kit list below.
Some of the activities need two people - so you might need a willing volunteer/ guinea pig, or to be one yourself!
A curious mind! I'm always up for a challenge, so if your scientists-in-training have any questions, you can always get in touch by emailing me on
Ready to get started?
I was planning to launch this club at a cost of £15 per child, but I know everyone is going through a tough time at the moment, so instead I am making it Pay-What-You-Can. I hope this makes the course available to as many people as possible.
All you have to do to get started is click on the button below. But if you are able to, I would really appreciate a donation to help me keep making content like this in the future
Please contribute here:
If you teach at a school that is still open, this can be run as a full day session, daily lessons spread over 1 week, or one session a week for 6 weeks, all delivered remotely. Just get in touch and I can tailor it to your preferences.
If you have moved to remote learning, this could be a great addition to your lessons- I can even run a private course just for your students. Just drop me an email and we can discuss the details.
If you have any questions, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
