Here at Future4Science we have a passion for enthusing children about all forms of sciences. We all love what we do here as the rewards are heart-warming when we get to see so many children inspired by our workshops and shows which are as entertaining as they are educational. So far we have mainly working with Primary schools (over 900) within the south England. As we have so much contact with schools, children and their parents we would like to help bring the IYC alive by informing our children and schools of as many of the events as possible, as well as offer exciting ideas for them to work with chemistry in the form of mini workshops. On top of this we would also promote out Chemistry workshops for next year to add a spark to their science interest within the school. We are also looking at a way of offering all our schools a colourful future 4 science periodic table to help promote chemistry even after the year 2011. We will be looking to focus our workshops towards chemistry next year.
