Everything schools need for practical science

2016
First invested

Empiribox recognise that only a small percentage of primary school teachers have a science background and that many often lack confidence teaching this subject. With the new National Curriculum asking schools to teach the scientific method as well as the basic science knowledge, many teachers feel at a loss as to what to do in classes. The Empiribox system addresses these issues by giving full CPD accredited training to teachers each term, designed to increase confidence and understanding of science. Every term, they supply all the equipment and teaching resources to ensure that teachers have the tools at their fingertips to easily do engaging and inspirational science throughout the year. Their system is cost effective and means no more storing, purchasing or time spent lesson planning. Empiribox @ Home was introduced in 2020 to help create practical science lessons at home in a safe and engaging way during the respective lockdowns.
