Franklin’s Young Inventors Science Club: Muscles

Saturday 3 July, 11.30am BST. Register here for this 30-minute virtual class.

Franklin’s Young Inventors is our weekly science club for aspiring scientists in Key Stage 3 (ages 11-14). We are delivering our science club virtually via Zoom on Tuesdays at 4.30pm BST or Saturdays at 11.30am BST. Participants will learn all about the experiments carried out by Benjamin Franklin and his British friends as well as trying their hand at practical investigations. This week we’ll be exploring the core biology topic of muscles.

If you would like to make your own arm muscle model, you will need 2 pieces of paper (A4), a cardboard tube (e.g. from kitchen roll), tape, a paper clip, a sharp pencil, a pen and 2 long modelling balloons.

Most suitable for Years 7-9 (US Grades 6-8) but all ages welcome!

Please note that the session will be recorded. A parent, carer or teacher should register on behalf of participants.

By registering, participants agree to follow our Online Safety Agreement. For more information, contact our Education Manager.
