FUNShops

Get kids excited about science with hands-on FUNshops for smaller groups. FUNshops explore a specific topic in science with lots interactive elements. They'll be having so much fun they won't realize they are learning!

Preschool-Level Workshops

Our preschool-level workshops offer hands-on learning experiences for kids ages 3-4. Each one is an age-appropriate exploration of a single science topic, like air, animals, weather, and worms. Kids enjoy engaging demos, perform simple experiments, and discover how science helps us understand our world.

All About Our FUNSshops

FAQ

What if I have more than 25 kids?

Although there are some topics that can squeeze extra kids in, the hands-on nature of the FUNshops means that there is only so much equipment to go around. We want to be sure your kids get the full experience. Ask us about options at the time of booking.

Am I in the local area? What is the travel charge?

40km of travel is covered in the basic price, so programs in the London area don't have to worry about a travel charge. For farther away locations we charge $0.37/km for the additional distance.

+

Does everyone always take something home from a workshop?

Yes! A take-home activity is part of every workshop program. Most of the time, the item is built during the workshop. In some workshops, the activity requires no assembly and will be given to the children at the end of the workshop.

+

How long in advance do I need to book?

We recommend 4-6 weeks before your event date in order to ensure that the time and topic you want is available.

Happy Customers

Here's What People Are Saying!

We received many positive comments from parents who thought it was an excellent learning opportunity. The children were laughing throughout the show!

Goderich Library

Goderich, ON

The program and presenter were fantastic! He was great with the kids! I was worried about how we were going to keep a group of 30 children aged 3-7 engaged for an hour, and they were totally drawn into the program. They were very calm and well-behaved when interacting with him.

Arthritis Society

London, ON

Everything went great and the kids enjoyed it, its always a little hard with science for 2.5 yr kids I find with some of the wording but the person that came did a good job, we will see you again next summer if not before. She had great energy. Thanks.
