SIBLING DISCOUNT

Reduced prices for additional children in the same family. Book your second or third child for just £24 each (Standard price £30). SAVE 10% for each additional sibling.

CHILDCARE VOUCHERS

As we are an activity provider offering specific tuition to help children improve their scientific skills, we are exempt from being Ofsted registered and are therefore unfortunately unable to accept childcare vouchers.

Holiday Science Camps

Bright Sparks Events science holiday activities are designed to entertain primary school aged children during the school holidays. We provide a safe environment for practical investigations, so children can come along and experiment for themselves, take part in our science challenges and investigate how things work. With some great WOW demonstrartions too, it’ll be an unforgettable experience!

WHAT WILL THEY DO DURING THE SCIENCE CAMP?

Monday’s THEME

SPY LAB

Be a secret agent for the day and find out how a cryptographer can hide and decode secret messages. Use your spy skills to hide your identity, whilst uncovering your body’s own secret code. Have you got what it takes to complete our mission impossible?

TUESDAY’S THEME

COLOUR OF LIGHT

What is light and where does it come from? Explore the rainbows of light using diffraction glasses, take a closer look at lasers to find out if light can bend, discover fluorescing chemicals, invisible messages and play in the dark with shadow puppets.

WEDNESDAY’S THEME

CRACKING CONTRAPTIONS

From bicycles, boats and bulldozers to clocks, cars and cranes – Engineers solve practical problems by applying mathematical and scientific knowledge. Create crazy contraptions and engineer moving vehicles during this creative day!

THURSDAY’S  THEME

SCIENCE MAGIC

Many magic tricks can look mysterious and unexplainable, but a lot use science. Is it really magic or is it science? Let’s look at the process behind animation and trick our eyes with some mind-boggling illusions. Discover the secret to disappearing ink and a magic wallet.

FRIDAY’S THEME

HAIR RAISING ELECTRONS

Gain an understanding of static electricity through hands-on activities! You can even be used to complete an electrical circuit to spark a bulb to light up! Watch your friend’s hair stand on end with our special static electricity generator and see the sparks fly!
