Junior Einsteins Science Club is now enrolling for its science summer camps.
The club was created in Dublin, Ireland by Tracey-Jane Cassidy, a mum of three children with a passion for science communication.
Frustrated with the lack of hands-on interactive science her children were doing in primary school she set up Junior Einsteins Science Club.
Since its launch less than six years ago Tracey Jane Cassidy and her team have engaged with over 500,000 children through their scientist designed and developed educational programmes.
Junior Einsteins provide science after-school clubs, during school clubs, whole-of-school science shows, workshops, summer, Halloween and Easter science camps and science birthday parties, along with science corporate and family events and festivals.
Cassidy explains: “Through our bespoke science-based programmes, we develop children’s personal confidence and self-esteem. We promote creative thinking, teamwork, imagination and problem-solving abilities. We teach participants, ‘how to think…. not what to think’, which prepares students for the unpredictability of the future challenges they will face in our constantly changing world.”
Since the clubs inception Cassidy as come a long way. From her humble beginnings Cassidy has brought her business idea from primary schools in Dublin, to recently being asked to speak at the United Nation in New York next February by Princess Nisreen El-Hashemite of Iraq, executive director of ‘International Women and Girls in Science Day’, to capturing the attention of Virgin Media owner Richard Branson.
“Being crowned Richard Branson’s first prize winner of the International Voom business competition was a phenomenal experience,” Cassidy laughs.
“Branson said to me: “‘This is brilliant, I want my grandchildren doing this!'”
Cassidy will speak at the United Nations in New York next February 11th 2020.
