It’s British Science Week! And what better time to celebrate and explore the world of STEM? Is your child interested in Science and how things work? This week we’ve listed 3 exciting opportunities to foster your child’s love for science and expand your child’s imagination by doing their own experiments, asking questions, or just by observing. All the workshops are free to attend and can be enjoyed with the family.
