Science Then & Now: Where have we been and where are we going?

Come and join us on Saturday 17th March 2018 at John Burns Primary School for a fabulous afternoon of science fun as part of British Science Week.

1.30-5.30pm at John Burns Primary School, Wycliffe Road, SW11 5QR.

Entry £4 per child, £3 for siblings. Adults are free.

Aimed at families with children aged between 3-11 there will be lots of hands on activities for adults and children to do together, including a chance to meet some exciting creatures and learn about their evolution and adaptations at the Animal Show.

We want to raise the profile of STEM subjects with children and parents, encouraging them to see that science is both fun and accessible. This is a community event and all families are welcome to come and bring friends and relations!

Paul Newham will be presenting his show with his reptiles and small creatures; it’s interactive and suitable for audiences of all ages.

Sign up for one of our workshops – Finding Vitamin C at Sea and Extracting DNA – all included with entrance.

Plus visitors will be able to explore historical discoveries in ‘Maths in the Past’ and make some clever maths tricks to take away, explore the future of plastics in the ‘Polymer Play’ room and get the whole family together to join in thewind-energy-157121_960_720 Family Engineering Challenge which this year is about designing a Wind Turbine – energy for the future!

There will also be a Science Toy Shop and Refreshments Stall.


This event is being hosted by the PTA of John Burns Primary School with assistance from Sphere Science Ltd.
