What is Big Science Academy?


Our Big Science classes provide a deeper understanding of the weekly topics, and with further analysis. We nurture and build on what the pupils may have already learnt at school, and we add additional topics to broaden their understanding of Life, Earth, Physical Sciences and Engineering topics taught by our qualified science teachers.

Little House of Science introduces scientific concepts and ideas in an age-adjusted way via a fun and exciting mix of interactive discussions, practical demonstrations and numerous hands-on science projects and experiments for the kids.

Our classes are ideal to further your child’s scientific knowledge, and also assist them with their school or science fair projects and experiments.

Little House of Science’s blend of techniques helps create a unique learning environment, which stimulates their enthusiasm to learn more about our world and the role science plays in everything that we encounter.

Children are curious by nature, which creates the perfect platform for them to learn what science offers the world. Every child is a budding scientist, but needs the right direction to grow into one. 

Age Group

8-11 years


Our typical Big Science Academy sessions include:

  • more extensive learning material to each weekly topic, filled with facts and new knowledge to deepen their existing knowledge base
  • interactive discussions in which the teachers encourage the children to ask questions about the subject material. This also assists with developing communications skills and building confidence
  • a larger number of hands-on science projects and experiments, which makes lessons more engaging and fun
  • take home science projects for after school for the kids to work on and learn from, to further nurture their love for science away from the classroom
  • parental notes - Our parental and children notes are produced for each weekly class and topic. These are for both parents and children to read prior to each week in order to familiarise themselves about the content. They also includes information about the experiments we do during each class and include further reading/video material.
