Hand-Washing & Hygiene

These interactive workshops teach children about good personal hygiene and common bugs caught through germs.

From reminding young children the importance of correctly washing hands and catch coughs and sneezes, to looking at the science of the spread of bacteria and germs to support science delivery – we have the workshop for you!

The workshop was very informative.

The children enjoyed the hands on experience of learning about hand-washing. I would recommend this workshop to all primary children,
