Welcome to Scientots!


Welcome to Scientots

At Scientots we believe that science should be fun, exciting and accessible to children of all ages. We have a unique series of interactive workshops, covering a wide range of science topics, written specifically for younger children.

We provide inspiring sessions for your little ones in their pre-school or nursery setting. We also have party packages full of amazing experiments available for 4-10 year olds and a series of workshops for primary school age children both within school and at out of school clubs.  All our experienced staff are fully insured, DBS checked and sessions are linked to the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage), KS1 or KS2 curriculum.

About Us

Scientots was set up by qualified science teachers Steph Thurman and Bev Bexton.  Both Steph and Bev are mums of young children and between them have over 30 years experience working in classrooms and laboratories.  This has led to their desire to make science fun and engaging, and to inspire children at a young age to question their surroundings and develop a love of science.


Scientots began delivering workshops to nurseries and pre-schools within the York area in 2015 and has proven so successful it now provides fun science workshops in a wide range settings for children from 2 – 10 years old.  We currently deliver sessions in the North of England but shortly plan to cover the whole of the United Kingdom
