Junior Einsteins Science Club
July - August
9am - 1pm Mon - Fri
We are proud of our Award-winning hands- on Science Camps for kids 6-12 yrs !
Everything we do here at Junior Einsteins Science Club is because we are passionate about bringing STEM to young children in a fun filled high energy way. Our camps are very child-centric and all of our children are ‘Junior Einsteins’ ! We nurture children’s natural curiosity & creativity. We inspire our ‘Junior Einsteins’ to use their imaginations, make a mess, explore and discover. We do this through fantastic interactive experiments from slime making children learn about long chain polymerisation and Non-Newtonian fluids. A Barbie Doll gets a hair raising experience on a Van Der Graaf generator while children learn about voltage and current. Lighting a light sabre with a plasma ball we learn how electricity flows!
We inspire our ‘Junior Einsteins to explore a broad range of STEM subjects learning by doing; Fossil making, Forensics, Arctic Animal Adaptations, Classification of Life, Rocket Races, Bug Hunts, Illusions and how cartoons are made, Geology and Volcanoes, Bernoulli’s effect and how planes fly, marine biology, quantum physics using Nerf guns. Microbiology, Chemistry ; PH Purple Power & Exothermic reactions making elephant’s toothpaste, Magnets, Light, Anatomy ,Engineering , covering STEM & STEAM areas. Learning through tons of fun!
We teach children ‘How to Think, not What to think ‘ , best preparing them for our ever changing world. We hope our ‘Junior Einsteins’ will build their love of Science in Primary School and choose science as a subject in secondary school and on to third level. We need more scientists !Book Now
This camp may well have changed my daughter’s life. She came for the slime – very reluctantly. Each day she became more and more enthusiastic. So our 9 year old who would normally have limited interest in this type of thing was entirely gripped. By dinner on Friday evening she regaled us with facts about tectonic plates, how Greenland was formed, lightning, bees, oil spills, explosions… for about an hour. Every detail was correct, some we didn’t even know. Since then she’s been asking are there secondary schools where you can just study science, all about careers in science, what you can study in university, how much you get paid!… She’s even planning to dress up as a dead scientist for Hallowe’en! In one week you have communicated the fun and endless fascination of science in a way that had just clicked for this little girl. Thank you so much! - Ciara, Science Summer Camp 2018
The Junior Einstein’s Easter camp was truly fantastic. The excitement and joy on my children’s faces when I collected them was priceless. When I asked them how the day went they replied “10/10!”, “Brilliant!” and animatedly described the experiments and all the fun they had had. Their favourite activity was making slime and getting to take it home with them. They have asked to return for the summer camp and they can’t wait. I would highly recommend Junior Einstein’s, the Scientists that run the classes are really friendly and very good with the children and this is one camp that I would have no hesitation sending the children back to again, they absolutely loved it! - Joanne O’Shea , Dublin April 2019
I have to say my 2 boys have loved every minute of this week's camp. It's been a pleasure to collect them and here all the excitement of what they got up and the staff are all great. it’s a wonderful experience for children - Donna Naughton Aug 2018
Just wanted to say a big thank you to your science tutors in the camp today. Amelia had a ball ! She was a little nervous going in as it’s her first time doing an activity camp where she didn’t know any of the other kids. But she settled in & thoroughly enjoyed it. She loved learning about conductors & the Van der Graaf generator was possibly her favourite! She’s explained how cartoons/films were made “long ago” ( courtesy of the straw & fish/fishbowl drawing!) AND we’ve had a model paper plane throwing competition! So obviously the fun & learning doesn’t stop once the kids leave a Junior Einstein Camp. And we haven’t even gotten to the slime yet! She’s already asking can she do another camp during the Summer! - Thanks again,Orlagh Murphy 2018
When I collected my, just gone, six year old from his first day of science camp he said “Mammy, that was awesome!”. The next day he said “another great day Mammy” and on the the morning of last day he told me he was sad because today was the last day of science camp. Walking out he said “See you next summer Mike!” so I guess he’ll be going back next summer! - Niamh Cassidy July 2019
My two sons Ronan and Cillian Delappe attended the camp for one week and every moment was enjoyable. They had so much information coming home and thoroughly enjoyed the camp. The two teachers were excellent and you could see that they truly enjoyed teaching and put a lot of work into the preparation for each class. A big Thank You to Keith and Claire.2019
Science summer camp 2019 Just a quick email to feedback how much my 7 year old son Thomas enjoyed the camp last week.
The balance between learning and fun kept him engrossed in the camp all week. He thoroughly enjoyed it. The camp was well organised and the preparation and professionalism was clear to see.Thanks, Claire Ahern 2019
