Everything we do here at Junior Einsteins Science Club is because we are passionate about bringing STEM to young children in a fun filled high energy way. Our Summer Camps are very child-centric and all of our children are our ‘Junior Einsteins’ ! We nurture children’s natural curiosity & creativity. We inspire our ‘Junior Einsteins’ to use their imaginations, make a mess, explore and discover. We do this through fantastic interactive experiments from Slimy Slime where children learn about long chain polymerisation and Non-Newtonian fluids. A Barbie Doll gets a hair raising experience on a Van Der Graaf generator while children learn about voltage and current. Lighting a light sabre with a plasma ball we learn how electricity flows! We inspire our ‘Junior Einsteins to explore a broad range of STEM subjects learning by doing; Fossil making, Forensics & DNA Extraction, Classification of Life, Rocket Races, Bug Hunts, Illusions and how cartoons are made, Geology and Volcanoes, Bernoulli’s effect and how planes fly, marine biology, quantum physics using Nerf guns. Chemistry ; PH Purple Power & Exothermic reactions making elephant’s toothpaste, Coke & Mentos Geysers, Magnets, Light, Anatomy, Giant Smoke Cannons, Engineering, covering STEM & STEAM areas. Learning through tons of fun! LOTS of OUTDOOR Fun !
We teach children ‘How to Think, not What to think ‘, best preparing them for our ever changing world. We hope our ‘Junior Einsteins’ will build their love of Science in Primary School and choose science as a subject in secondary school and on to third level. We need more scientists!
Our science instructors are insured and Garda checked. What to bring: Old clothes – lab coats are provided however science can be dirty work. Packed lunch, snack and drink Rain gear, sun hat and sunscreen.** Online bookings only
