Student Workshops

We help your students realise their true potential

Managing perfectionism and setbacks

Failure and setbacks are vital to learning.

STUDENT WORKSHOPS ARE NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE

We realise that the current Coronavirus crisis makes it very hard for schools to know what September will look like. Of course, we’re happy to visit your school and deliver this workshop in person if it is possible and safe to do so. However, all of our student workshops are available for online delivery.

Our online platform allows your students to access, complete and revisit this workshop at any time. Thanks to a mix of videos, resources and experiments, our online courses are as engaging, interactive and practical as the ones we’ve been delivering for 14 years.
