Science Explorers! SEN Science Workshops

Would your students like to take part in science workshops which have been specially designed for students with special educational needs?

Science Made Simple have been awarded funding to develop a multi-sensory science workshop specifically tailored to students with Special Educational Needs, with a particular emphasis on young people with autism.

This Autumn term, we are looking for schools in Wales to help us pilot these sessions.
We are very excited to be able to offer to your school, a full day of up to 6 workshops for just:

£75 + VAT

This price includes one presenter visiting your school for a day and delivering up to 6 workshops (RRP £550 +VAT).

What does the workshop include?

The workshop is based upon our longest running and most popular show “Music to Your Ears”. Through interactive and hands-on demos, our presenter will guide your students’ scientific exploration of vibrations, sound and music. The presenter will work with your staff’s expertise in engaging your students to adapt the workshop for all.

The workshops will be approximately 20 minutes long each, and can accommodate a class of up to 8-12 students and their teaching and support staff. Our presenter can deliver up to 6 workshops a day to maximise the number of students we can reach.


Workshop days will take place in the Autumn term. On registering your interest, you will be contacted to discuss your availability.

Is my school eligible?

This workshop is only available:

  • To classes of children with Special Educational Needs
  • To schools in Wales
  • In the Autumn term 2019

Unfortunately, we can only offer a limited number of these funded workshops. Workshops will be issued on a first-come-first served basis. Priority will be given to schools who are willing to be involved in our evaluation focus groups.

Science made simple was established in 2002. We are a social enterprise with a passion for science and all things associated with it!

We aim to share our enthusiasm by offering inspirational and educational experiences that are tailor-made for schools, festivals, adult audiences and the public. We were established in 2002 and now reach over 75,000 students a year throughout the UK and overseas.

We make every effort to adapt shows to suit our audience’s needs. Thanks to funding that we have been awarded by the Waterloo Foundation, we have been able to develop a multi-sensory science show specifically tailored to students with Special Educational Needs with particular emphasis on young people with autism.

Our mission:

To inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers

To engage the wider public with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) as part of popular culture

To strengthen connections between researchers and the public.

We have won more awards for our work than any other UK science show provider:

  • 2017- IOP Lord Kelvin Medal for Public Engagement with Physics
  • 2013- Innovator Award – Learning outside the classroom
  • 2009- Royal Academy of Engineering Public Promotion of Engineering Medal
  • 2006- Institute of Acoustics Award for Public Engagement
  • 2006- EU Descartes Prize for Science Communication
  • 2004- Women into Science, Engineering and Construction Excellence Award

What do audiences and teachers say about us?

Engineering I thought was to do with machines and I thought it would be a boring job,
but now I think I might be one.

“science made simple provided a stimulating, entertaining and challenging kick start to our action packed Science Week. The shows fully engaged children across KS1 and 2, and the evening show for families was a terrific opportunity to develop parental involvement in school.”

Paul Smith,  Headteacher, Grange Park Primary School

“Top of the range science presentations: enthusiastic, pacey, articulate, well-informed & flexibly tailored to our audiences, including combined KS2 with KS3. Substantial science content alongside the ‘wow’ factor!”

Alastair Cuthbertson, Science Teacher, Ivybridge Community College.
