Calling All Parents Of 5 to 12-Year-Olds Looking
For A Modern Online Science Course

  • Do you want to inspire your primary school child  to learn and love modern 21st Century science?

  • The Periodic Table is a scientific alphabet, so we start with this first.  

  • Do you want them to have FUN while learning advanced science? 

  • Do you want to leap frog them 10 years ahead of their school classes and set them up for confidence and success in high school and beyond?  

Our courses start at the beginning as if you or your child know nothing about atoms and molecules.  Starting with easy, everyday language, you progressively learn the language of real scientists The lessons engage both your child's left side and right side of the brain.  We target the Big Ideas in STEM and science rather than the "baby science" they get in school.  Our core curriculum covers the Periodic Table, molecular theory, electric charges and protons, electrons and neutrons. We make it easy and fun for them to fly higher in their science journey. 


See our advanced curriculum below.

Starter Course 1:  Atoms   
                 The Building Blocks of Matter

What They Learn
Your child will discover that just 92 different kinds of atoms make up their world.  That they're invisibly tiny.  That each has its own shorthand way of writing it, called its symbol.  That each has its own special number, called its Atomic Number.


What They Do
You will have access to your own printable copy of all 92 elements, plus the extra 26 elements that clever scientists have made in the lab.  Then you can cut and paste all 118 elements to make their own element list containing all the kinds of atoms in the Universe and stick this on their bedroom wall.  The Universe in their own bedroom!

Parents, You're Invited

What better way for parents to support their child's learning than to join them with their online learning for free?  You might even have some "ah ha" moments when you remember long-lost science concepts, or discover new ones that blow your mind.  Some parents get as much out of it as their kids.


If you can't make it, that's fine.  We will provide the best learning opportunities for them to grow their science while at the same time meeting new friends and having superscientific fun.

Starter Course 2:  The Periodic Table  
                         The Alphabet of the Universe


We call the Periodic Table the Alphabet Of The Universe because it contains the symbols for all 92 atoms found in Nature, plus some extra ones, arranged in order of increasing Atomic Numbers.  Just like the normal alphabet, the Periodic Table is a list of letters that kids can use to build "words", that is, new substances just as Nature does.  Your child learns about the nuts and bolts of the Universe.

Starter Course 3:  Molecules
    Making the Molecules of Life

What they learn

Did you know that children find molecules pretty easy to understand? They are fascinated how atoms can bond together and even follow specific bonding rules. Your kids can even learn to write structural and molecular formulas like H2O and CH4!  And by learning this language of real scientists they are being prepared for future success.

Surprisingly, though, primary schools tend to avoid teaching this exciting topic. However, we believe it's time to change that! Our fantastic workshop makes learning about molecules a breeze!

In this workshop, we'll start with the Fabulous Four molecules which all use single bonds: hydrogen, H2, water, H2O, ammonia NH3, and methane CH4. Following that we will delve into the Terrific Three molecules which involve double and triple bonds:  O2, CO2 and N2.


These seven molecules aren't just important in our everyday lives, they also serve as powerful demonstrations of underlying chemical principles.

What they do
Your student will play with our interactive (and patented) Sticky Atoms models, allowing students to visualize the four chemical valencies of different atoms and understand how single, double and triple bonds hold them together.

But that's just the beginning! Prepare for an extraordinary accomplishment as your children combine these seven molecules and unlock the very building blocks of life itself. They will discover the remarkable power of molecular combination as they create amino acids and even protein molecules. It's astonishing to think that even older high school students rarely have the chance to explore such advanced concepts.

By grasping these fundamental principles at an early age, your children will gain a head start in their scientific journey. They will establish a solid foundation in Inorganic Chemistry and Biochemistry, paving the way for future success in STEM education. This achievement will set them apart and create exciting opportunities that lie ahead.

Starter Course 4:  Protons, Neutrons and Electrons                              The Secret Electric Life of Atoms

In this electrifying workshop, your child will embark on a hands-on journey to uncover the secrets of electricity and the inner workings of atoms. Prepare for some astonishing experiments that will leave them in awe!


What They Learn

Through simple yet dramatic electrostatic experiments, they'll discover that there’s electricity inside matter. These experiments will also illuminate the concept that electric force can be both attractive and repulsive, grows stronger with the amount of charge, yet weaker with distance.

Protons and electrons, the fundamental charge-carriers of Nature, hold the key to an atom's "personality." Your child will grasp why the Periodic Table is structured the way it is and why atoms occupy specific positions within it. It's like solving a puzzle that even high school students struggle with, but we'll explain it clearly so that primary kids can master it with ease. 

We'll unravel the mystery of how atoms are composed of protons and neutrons nestled in the nucleus, while electrons gracefully orbit in shells on the outside. It's like peering into the very core of matter! They will gain a profound understanding of the modern definition of Atomic Number, which represents the number of protons located within the nucleus. It's an essential concept that lays the foundation for their scientific journey.

What They Do

Our workshop kicks off with exciting activities involving electric charges. Your child will make pieces of paper dance, witness their hair stand on end, and even push an aluminum can with a charged rod. It's an adventure filled with surprises!

Hold onto your seats as they witness their instructor bravely encounter a 400,000V Van de Graff generator, creating mini-bolts of lightning. The machine even has the power to make cupcakes soar through the air like a fountain! These thrilling demonstrations will set the stage for understanding the intricate workings of atoms.

To help your child grasp the layout of protons, electrons, and neutrons within atoms, we employ our exclusive Atom Maker model. It mimics the structure of an atom, making it a breeze to understand how protons and electrons interact with each other and within themselves. It's a key to unlocking the secrets of the world around us!

Advanced Workshop 4:  Electromagnetism
                 How It Makes the World Go Round

Buckle up for a mind-blowing revelation: electricity and magnetism are like BFFs, two peas in a pod! It's like a cosmic connection – electricity can whip up magnets, and magnets can conjure electricity. Mind. Blown.


Why does this matter, you ask? Well, we've harnessed this dynamic duo to create the coolest contraptions on the block – electric motors and their funky cousins, electric generators. The best part? We're not stuck relying solely on batteries to power our homes or devices. But hey, having both options is like having your cake and eating it too.

Now, imagine diving into a workshop where the magic happens. You'll get the inside story on magnetic fields, and even map their field lines courtesy of your everyday magnet. Ever wondered how electricity can flex its muscles and create a magnetic field? We'll unravel that mystery too. But hold on to your lab coats because we're flipping the script – you'll learn how to turn a magnetic field into electricity. Ta-da! Along the way, you'll be the wizard behind the curtain, crafting your very own electric motor, a legit transformer (no Hollywood glam here), and the world's simplest electric train. Get ready for a wild ride through the electrifying wonderland of magnets and electricity – where science meets pure, unadulterated FUN! 🚀✨
