About our Club

With the environmental challenges facing our world today who wouldn’t want their child to find science fun and engaging? That’s why Mother Nature Science Club helps children achieve this by exploring a wide variety of scientific topics which are as entertaining as they are educational.

Every week your child will watch spectacular demonstrations and participate in experiments and discussions across Chemistry, Biology and Physics; taking home cool science-related items they have made themselves. Parents also receive a ‘Science System Sheet’ so you can see what your child is learning and continue to explore the science at home together!

Our sessions are designed to inspire children of all abilities to have a love of science both in and out of school. We run at schools during the autumn, spring and summer terms and are Partnered with hundreds of schools – some which we have been running at for over ten years.

We have six ‘Super Science Systems’ meaning we can run for up to six school terms without repeating – see Systems Here

Please note: your child must already attend the listed Schools in order to enrol. If your school is not running our Science Club please Contact Us and we will contact them to set one up. If your school is running our club, but enrolment is handled internally, please contact your school directly to enrol.

Headteacher Interview – The After School Science Club

Interview with Lynne Summer, Headteacher The Breakspear School, and Mother Nature Science

Q: Hi Lynne, can you believe the club has been running now for eight years, after such a long period of time why did you (the school) not take a break and why you think parents have continually kept enrolling their children term after term?
A: The school was extremely happy to continue working with Mother Nature Science as we always found them to be both personable and professional – always taking the needs of the children into account as well as respecting the ethos and expectations of the parents and school.

The children really enjoyed the interactive and highly practical and informative sessions; these, in turn, reinforced and added to the learning both at school and home. The sessions were extremely well planned, delivered and the instructors took time to really get to know the children and cater to their individual needs and interests.

The club was so well received that we were able to increase the provision from 1 session a week to 3 sessions a week!
Q: As you have discovered, our science club caters for children ages 5-12 of all abilities, can you think of a specific example where a child became more inspired and confident in their regular classes due to our club?
A: I can think of 2 children, in particular with very different needs. One child who was wary of changes in routine and experienced anxiety with establishing new relationships found the lessons very interesting and highly enjoyable. This child was, through the successful working partnership of the School and the Mother Nature Science instructor, able to access a great learning experience which supported his intellectual as well as social and emotional needs. The other child responded well to the sessions as they promoted his self-esteem as well as providing him with mentally stimulating activities. For both children, the sessions stimulated their natural curiosity, promoted their self-confidence and provided an opportunity, outside the school classroom, to both learn and establish effective relationships with other children and adults.
