We will introduce you to the basics of physics, chemistry and biology, and look at how we can make scientific discoveries through observation and experimentation. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and get involved with discussions – as well as trying your hand at some fun and easy experiments in your own homes. This is an introductory course built around school level science, so no past experience is necessary!
