Ok, so we need your help! While we’ve made great progress getting a team of volunteers in place and we’re nearly ready to start getting out into schools (just waiting for DBS checks to clear), our subscription box plans have been held up until we can raise the funds to get the initial box produced. As a reminder, these boxes are delivered to your door each month and include 2-3 Science Experiments, a fun Coding Project (normally a game), themed cooking recipes, puzzles, games, a gift and amazing discounts for educational gifts/venues.
We’ve chosen the Voom platform to launch the service and hopefully raise the funds we need – in fact with your help, we could even get more help and support from Richard Branson’s team at Virgin Media. We’ve just gone live on the platform, nearly a month after others, so we’ve got a bit of catching up to do if we want to be in the top 80 that go through, but if we can raise the £2,000 target we’ve set then we’ve not only got enough to start the subscription boxes and buy stock for the store, but we’ve also raised the rest of the cash we need for our mobile planetarium!
Ways in which you can help:
- Tell Everyone! Please share our Voom page on your social media and tell your friends – we need votes and ideally need to get some pre-orders for the subscription boxes.
- Subscribe! If you have a child in the family aged 6-14, why not buy them a box (or 12!) to help inspire them to be the next big UK Inventor, Scientist, Programmer, Games Designer, Engineer, Astronaut… you get the point!

Once again, I really appreciate any support you can give – thanks in advance.
