Franklin’s Young Inventors

Franklin’s Young Inventors is our science club for aspiring scientists in Key Stage 3 (ages 11-14).

Participants learn all about the experiments carried out by Benjamin Franklin and his British friends as well as trying their hand at practical investigations. A range of core topics from the science curriculum are covered including electricity, forces, sound and the human body.

This autumn we are delivering our Franklin’s Young Inventors programme digitally via Zoom on Tuesdays at 4.30pm BST and Saturdays at 11.30am BST. Click on the links below to visit  the event pages and register for upcoming sessions:
