Learning Resources teams up with Butlin’s for Science Lab workshops

Published on: 14th January 2020

Learning Resources has teamed up with Butlin’s to offer pre-schoolers fun science lab and STEM adventures exclusively on its Just for Tots breaks. 

Kicking off in March 2020, kids can join the Redcoat Professors in the Butlin’s Science Lab and discover the wonders and mysteries of science through experiments and hands-on STEM learning fun.

Pre-schoolers can learn how to make a raisin dance and other engaging experiments using Learning Resources’ Primary Science made-for-kids lab equipment. They will also look the part with Primary Science lab coats and goggles.

The first round of workshops will start in March and will be available at all three resorts (Bognor Regis, Minehead, Skegness) through the year and again in 2021.

Butlin’s Redcoats will be on hand to introduce kids under five to early STEM skills through hands-on play. The child-friendly experiments have been developed by Learning Resources’ experts to introduce curious young minds to scientific thinking concepts like inquiry and observation, through easy-to-follow chemistry and physics activities.

Dennis Blackmore, MD and founder of Learning Resources said: “Learning Resources has created educational toys that parents and children have loved for over 25 years. Our goal as the leading UK educational toys company is to nurture children’s natural curiosity and capacity to learn through play. Butlin’s Just for Tots ‘Science Lab workshops’ offer us the chance to combine what we love best: inspiring curious young minds and creating experiences we hope will inspire a lifelong love of learning and discovery.”

Butlin’s managing director Jon Hendry-Pickup added: “We aim to give families a really wide choice of activities to enjoy together on our breaks, and if they can learn and be educated at the same time as having fun then that’s even better. Adding these great workshops to our already popular Just for Tots breaks will do exactly that.”
