Don't Pop The Ballson! | Kids Parties By Science Boffins

Our Science Parties only need enough space to fit in a small table, your Science Boffin and the children. If the weather is good, it’s always fun to demonstrate messier and explosive science experiments outside, although our talented Boffins always make sure that your children have a fantastic time, inside or out.

We cover most of the UK (see: regions we cover) and our Science Boffins are professional children’s entertainers, who have been DBS checked and specially-trained for Kids Parties.

Boost the profile of science in your school with a visit from Science Boffins!

We are on a mission to get kids excited about science from a young age. As part of this mission, we visit schools across the UK to deliver fun, interactive and educational science workshops, assemblies and other school events. All of our events feature real life, practical experiments to give children a hands-on experience of science.

Science Boffins teaching during British Science Week

We work closely with schools and teachers to ensure our events link directly to the KS1 and KS2 science curriculum, meaning our visits fit in perfectly with your lesson planning! From states of matter to biology, our Boffins are raring to go with 5 different workshops tailored to the national curriculum and designed to inspire your pupils in a unique and interactive way.

With budgets being squeezed tighter than ever, we're proud to say our school events start from just 60p per pupil.

All our Boffins are DBS-approved, are fully insured and are natural entertainers so you can rest assured you and your pupils are in good hands. Our Boffins also bring all their own materials and equipment (we’ll just need a room, a table and an audience!) so you can sit back and enjoy the event too.

Did you know we also run specially-adapted school events for British Science Week – our favourite week of the year! Find out more here or call us on 020 8953 5566.

Do you run a learning assisted school or group for pupils with special educational needs? Over the past 12 years, we have been specially selected by charities, schools and individuals to entertain and educate their pupils at LAS and SEN schools. Find out more about our work with these groups here.

“Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Boffin Jayne for a fantastic day! All of the children had an amazing time and really enjoyed the practical activities. The assembly was brilliant and all the workshops were pitched just right. Rocket launched first time too! A wonderful day and I would highly recommend Science Boffins.”Julie, Our Lady and St Teresa Primary School.

Meet our Science Boffins – they like to cause a chemical reaction; to demonstrate that what goes up may not come down; to show how light can create magical illusions; and, most of all, they like to involve the children in very smelly experiments!

Before we visit your school, please make sure you have asked any questions you may have:

1. Do you have your own public liability insurance?

Yes! All of our Boffins are hand picked and trained by our head Boffin. Part of their training process covers them for up to £10m.

 

2. Are the presenters DBS checked?

Of course! Safeguarding and the safety of both our presenters and children is top of the priority list, therefore we make sure that every presenter has a valid DBS, certified within the last 3 years.

 

3. How long is an assembly?

Our show can be up to 60 minutes, although shorter if you’re tight on time. It’s a mixture of our favourite experiments designed to excite and inspire the children.

 

4. How long is each workshop?

Our workshops are designed to be between 30 and 60 minutes.

 

5. How many children can you see at a time?

With an assembly, if the children can fit in the room then we’ll entertain them. With workshops we ask for no more than 30 pupils. If you need larger numbers than this, it will be more of an assembly program than a hands on workshop.

 

6. When will you invoice / when is payment due?

We normally invoice approximately 14 days before your science day, with the exception of events in March where due to high demand it may be after the event. We have 30 day terms from the invoice date.

 

7. How long before the presenter starts will they arrive?

Most presenters will arrive half an hour before they’re due to start. Some like a little more time, some a little less but half an hour is the average.

 

8. What equipment will you need us to supply?

All we need from you is a table (a lunch table is ideal), a power supply and access to water to fill jugs up.

 

9. Do you just do BSW?

No! We’re able to do events 365 days a year!

 

10. Do you do any other workshop titles?

We focus on 5 workshop titles each academic year, and normally change one or two over the summer holidays. To ensure our workshops are the best they can be, we’re unable to offer other titles during the school year.
