Franklin’s Young Scientists

Franklin’s Young Scientists is our FREE 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.

Specific dates will be confirmed later in 2022, along with information on the experiments being carried out in each session. Below you can see our planned schedule of topics for the programme;
