More about this Workshop/Service and the Provider

Welcome to Balestra Primary Science Workshops, providing exciting and inspiring science workshops for schools, delivered by an experienced primary teacher and at a fraction of the cost of an out of school trip.  


Each workshop is a unique combination of history and science and is built around a range of exciting wow! moments with a wide variety of bespoke resources leading to original activities that we are confident you won't find in any other primary science workshop in the country.  Resources such as our working Stephenson's Rocket steam train, our 'make your own' music boxes, our pre-made circuit boards and our fossil sorting boxes, to name but a few, allow us to provide activities that are both perfectly matched to the new curriculum while also providing an extension to your pupils' existing topic knowledge.

 But that's not all, because our primary science workshops are adaptable too, both for different age ranges and also for the amount of classes you want them delivering too, meaning we are ready to meet the needs of your curriculum and budget, however diverse they may be.

Win a Rocketeers Trophy for Your Class

Perfect for a whole Juniors focus on forces or simply as a one off challenge day our rocket challenge workshop is an extremely fun way for all your Key Stage Two pupils to work towards a single goal of being the ultimate KS2 rocket champion!

 Taught a class at a time, each pupil will learn how to make their own air powered rocket with one of two challenges, depending on our British weather!

 CHALLENGE 1 (outdoor version, good weather - we manage to do this about 80% of the time barring downpours or too-strong winds):   Who can design a rocket to stay in the air the longest in timed flights?  (Best time wins it for their class).

 CHALLENGE 2: (indoor version, bad weather in school hall): Who can get the most points on our 3m target?  (Whole class score added up).
