Our Story

In 2019 Spark Science began its journey offering exciting, unforgettable, educational experiences that aim to develop passion for science, sports and learning new skills.

Childhood is precious and we help to make it magical by providing enriching experiences where children can explore new passions in a nurturing, encouraging environment. 

Hello and welcome to Spark Science!


We are so excited to share our passion with you! Our mission is to  make science enjoyable and relevant to children to educate, inspire and entertain our next generation!


There is a huge focus on academic achievement and of course that is important but sometimes the love of learning gets lost. We aim to instil a passion for science creating amazing, unforgettable experiences that will intrinsically motivate children to investigate and stay curious about the world in which they live.

Spark Science was created by Emma Thornton in 2019. She has created programmes that fit in with school curriculum science and provide opportunities for children to develop socially, physically and emotionally as well as promoting academic achievement. Her programmes value communication, mathematical and scientific skills in addition to teamwork, creativity, empathy and self esteem; attributes which she considers vital to be happy, healthy and successful in all aspects of life. ​
