started with resources for science programmes and we are now
regarded as one of the leading providers of national Gifted
& Talented activities. We work with hundreds of schools
each year, delivering cross-curricular events and training programmes,
and we are proud of our record to date - 100% of these schools
recommend the events we deliver*. Our international programmes
also continue to develop. We are excited to be invited, as lead

of pupils participating in the lessons has been clearly noted.
The delivery and content of the lessons work together to provide
a stimulating learning environment, where science and citizenship
is not only challenging but also fun.
