Westgate Science Club -
...making science cool...for
primary school children aged 7 years +
Hands-on, practical experiments, demonstrations and special displays.
Great fun, with a touch of chemistry, physics, astronomy, biology.
Children can expect to learn through the experience but fun is first, learning is secondary. Westgate Science Club is just that, a club not a science class.
On a Friday evening once a month from September through to Easter.
Each evening includes special demonstrations.
Details of dates & times for 2018 - see contacts page.
The Club is held in the Lower Hall at The Westgate Church building in Bartholomew Street West, Exeter (The building with 2
opposite The Picture House) EX4 3AJ.
