Teach, practice and play at home
At Yellow Brick Lab we believe that all children should have access to our workshops and we are doing our best to include as many children as possible.
Experiment in your own homes
We offer private workshops ideal for home-educated children, as well as children with limited mobility and/or special needs. In this way children can explore their talents and develop their skills in the comfort and security of their home environment, both individually or in groups.
We offer these sessions during normal school hours as a means to complement the lesson content you're already providing your children, simply in a more specialised way. Alternatively, we operate a group reserved to home educated children in Lewes every Monday morning (09:45 - 11:15) at the Malling Community Centre.
The kits that we use are so cleverly designed that there are guided projects spanning lots of areas of science, computational thinking and the natural environment. For the environmentalists amongst us we could offer activities exploring flood prevention, sorting for recycling, or cleaning the oceans. For those engineering concepts that are too tricky to explain how's about we explore building robust structures, speed or the physics behind pulling objects. If the wider world is your focus then consider our extreme habitats and preditors and prey projects. And if your need is a bit more extraterrestrial then we could offer space exploration or moon bases. There's lots to see and discover.
All queries are welcome - we will always see how we can help complement the fantastic education you are already giving your children.
