The Mad Science Club will return on Saturday 7 March as it once again looks to inspire engineers, scientists and mathematicians of the future with its fun and creative learning experiences.

The event will take place during British Science Week and be aimed at children aged 7 to 11 years of age.

It is led by Unleashing Potential and Next Generation Scheme, running in partnership with the British Science Association, Chiltern Learning Trust and Challney High School for Boys.

Inspire FM will be supporting the initiative, which again will have Luton Foodbank as its charity partner.

The Mad Science Club initiative ran three times during 2019 (see photo above with Chris Love of Tech4Primary) and enabled children to experience robotics, 3D printing and coding in an enriching environment.

“With the Mad Science Club, our mentors aim to inspire children so that they can grow up and make their mark in the world,” said Amar Azam, of Unleashing Potential.

“With the help of volunteers from the community, we are able to provide the children with experiences which we hope will help nurture an interest in careers where they can follow their dreams and really make a difference.”

The event will also help raise awareness of the Luton Foodbank’s work with families in the town.

Salma Khan, Project Manager for the Luton Foodbank, said: “We are once again pleased to be a part of this partnership which enables children to learn about an issue such as food poverty that affects our communities.”
