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.
