For Children 6-12 years
We set up an after-school science club at your child’s primary school and sent our own science instructor weekly.
We also have Saturday Science Clubs running in your locality.
We are an innovative initiative passionate about bringing a love of science experiments and learning to primary school aged children. Our inclusive, hands-on approach is unique. Science Activities for Kids. We are not a science class, the children make and do their own STEM experiments, wearing their lab coats and goggles, using real scientific equipment including Van Der Graff Generators & plasma balls ( Did we mention Nerf guns! ?) . Our science instructors are Garda cleared and Insured.
STEM Ambassador programme for teachers

We would love to bring a primary school teacher from your school through our Junior Einsteins Science Club educational programme. We want to inspire a love of science and learning and nurture children’s natural curiosity, creativity & imagination. We provide your teacher with the license, training, scripts, videos, risk assessments, safety statements, Garda Vetting, insurance, lab coats materials & scientific equipment to run a Junior Einsteins weekly after-school science club in your school.
The pay is generous from Junior Einsteins to the STEM ambassador per hourly after – school club and is paid termly to the dedicated person. Junior Einsteins provides the admin & bookings from parents as well as marketing and advertising.
We are looking for someone full of enthusiasm, fun, who loves to learn and is willing to do the intensive Junior Einsteins training programme in a serious and fully committed way.
It is important that the teacher holds the same values as we do here at Junior Einsteins. The traits we look for are ; Integrity. hard worker, A science lover, Disciplined, Fun, Personable, Enthusiastic Independent & Collaborative.

We train and support your STEM ambassador to teach sessions covering a wide range of STEM topics such as Forensics, Fossils, Anatomy, Rocket races, bug hunts, exothermic reactions, Slime, Van Der Graaf generators, light the light sabre, volcanos, Bernoulli’s effect, Arctic animal adaptations, Quantum Physics, Microbiology, The Solar System and many many more with 100s of tried and tested themed experiments!
We have recently partnered with Education Centres & The Department of Education to train STEM ambassadors in schools across Ireland.
If you know of a teacher in your school who you think would be ideal as a Junior Einsteins STEM ambassador, please do ask them to contact us. E mail : firstname.lastname@example.org

We run in a school for a year ( sometimes even more !) without repeating a single topic.
Every week in science club is a different experience. Some children are more interested in the biology sessions, some the chemistry. Everyone loves slime and fossils ! But our aim is to give children the grammar of the language of science at a young age.
Some of our after-school activities include :
- Slime making (Long-chain polymerisation , Newtonian & Non-Newtonian fluids)
- Smoke cannons (Force, Vectors)
- Bernoulli’s Flying Machines (the principals of flight)
- Rocket races
- Bug Hunts
- Van Der Graff generator ( Can you touch 250,000 volts? ( voltage vs Current)
- Light The Light sabre plasma ball (electricity)
- Coke & Mentos Geyser (force and nucleation)
- Forensic Crime Scene
- Elephant Toothpaste (Hydrogen peroxide , Potassium Iodide chemical reaction : Exothermic reactions)
- Make your own fossils (palaeontologists !)
- Light (rainbow glasses)
- Engineering bridges
- How boats float (buoyancy)
- Make your own lava lamp (density)
- Cartoon Carpers; How cartoons are made (illusion & how the eye can trick the brain)
Science Club is run for one hour after school hours. We can also run two sessions back to back, the first for the juniors, the second for the seniors.
Early booking is recommended.
Here at Junior Einsteins we teach children ‘how to think not what to think’. Our prices reflect the overall experience the child has throughout the term. Our science instructors are all trained , garda vetted and insured and every science club session risk assessed. We will bring in fantastic Van Der Graaf generators and other pieces of fun, but expensive kit
We do not try to break down science experiences into € per child per hour. Sometimes inspiration can be priceless to us if a child discovers a passion for science and learning or chooses to study science at secondary and third level.
Nourish wonderment, curiosity and imagination EXAMPLE : A 12 week term is aprox €140 and an 8 week term aprox €96 per child per term booked and paid for at the beginning of the term.
We can run for up to one year in a school without repeating a single topic!
