Exciting Science Shows for Primary Schools in Northern England


Are you looking for new ways to…

Enthuse your pupils in science and engineering subjects or careers?

Give your pupils a great science experience without the hassle of leaving your school?

Expose your pupils to positive science role models?

How we can help

Our shows are live, exciting and interactive and are performed by passionate science-literate presenters who are positive role models for science.

We have a range of KS1 and KS2 shows available.They are all purpose-built to support the school curriculum, and to advance pupils’ learning objectives.

We present the shows in your school hall to as many pupils as it can hold.  We also bring all of the equipment we need with us and our staff are DBS checked. This removes the cost and logistics of taking pupils out of school or providing supply cover.

For example you could have our KS1 show “Bubbles and Balloons”, followed by either “Who Wants to be a Superhero?” or “On Your Marks, Get Set…” for your KS2 pupils and reach your whole school in one day! 



How do I book?

All you need to do is pick a show that suits your needs and let us know when you would like it.

If you have a topic in mind, but are not sure what show would be best, we can help you work that out. We are happy to be flexible and on the day our presenters are trained to be flexible too helping us to suit the needs of your audience.

The cost to have us for one day depends on the distance of your school from your nearest presenter. Our prices start from £550 + VAT. For a specific quote for your school, please contact us by pressing the button below.

@YsgolMaesglas @scimadesimple so much fun had by all! 🌡🔭 pic.twitter.com/ttkZ6YHe4X

Just seen the Bubbles and Balloons show at Bournemouth Uni Festival of Learning. Presenter Becca was a very skilled demonstrator and the audience of mainly families with youngish children all enjoyed themselves hugely. Plenty of audience participation and a sensible amount of science for the young age group. Thank you!
