Got an event and need some kids entertainment?

We’ve got some great workstations that are just the thing for your big day

Workstations? What is it?

Workstations are a fantastic way to engage a huge number of people at public venues, children’s festivals and shopping centres. The ScienTwists direct the construction of take-home science creations over a 15 min period.

Groups of between 12-20 participants continually cycle through the selected Workstation activity, a blast for kids and adults alike!
