Splash Down Summer School 1 (Key Stage 3)




Newcastle University are excited to announce their week long “Marine Biology and the natural environment” Summer School for Key Stage 3 pupils. It offers 11-14 years olds a chance to investigate and explore the natural world in an informal and friendly setting, and gives them a “taster” of science and university life. As well as field trips, aquarium activities and microscope investigations, the children can enjoy games, art projects and fun activities.

We're running this course in conjunction with Northumberland Wildlife Trust and Newcastle University’s Marine Station.

We welcome back any student that has previously attended our Key Stage 2 courses, but students don't need any previous knowledge to join.
