We at Little House of Science foster this natural curiosity in boys and girls and re-enforce STEM related subjects in a fun, project-based way so that children can connect with science from an early age. All three partners take a great interest in the science community. They wanted their own children to explore and find answers to the questions about their world around them…such as how plants breathe, the universe, its galaxies, how bridges are built, the life of ants and bees to name a few. The partners therefore felt it would be great to have a safe and fun environment for kids to learn about the sciences and all the questions around it. An environment which is active, full of project based learning, 'hands-on&brains-on' and stimulating.
