Help children to develop a love of science and learning with your own Junior Einsteins Science Club franchise!

Who We Are

In 2014, the Junior Einsteins Science Club® was created in Dublin by Tracey-Jane Cassidy.

Tracey has an MA in Natural Science from Trinity College Dublin and an MSc in Medical Microbiology from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. She is also a mum of three young children who is passionate about children’s STEM education. The Junior Einsteins Science Club was borne from Tracey’s frustration at the lack of hands-on science educational programmes and activities available for young children. The business is committed to nurturing and nourishing a love of science and learning in thousands of children of between the ages of four and 12 across the entire country.

Since its launch less than four years ago, Tracey and her team have engaged with over 200,000 children through their scientist-designed and developed educational programmes.

What We Do

We provide science after-school clubs, during school clubs, whole-of-school science shows, summer, Halloween and Easter science camps and science birthday parties, along with science corporate and family events and festivals.

Through our bespoke science-based programmes, we develop children’s personal confidence and self-esteem. We promote creative thinking, teamwork, imagination and problem-solving abilities. We teach participants “how to think…. not what to think”, which prepares students for the unpredictability of the future challenges they will face in our constantly changing world.
