Last week we had amazing artists, this afternoon we had super scientists! There’s nothing these Play Packers can’t do and the world truly is their oyster! 🌏

Today 16 deaf kids joined us for a fabulous Weird Science Zoom workshop with Professor Adam from Mini Professors North West NI. Here’s what the kids had to say:

💥 ‘Wow - Charlotte loved that!!’

⚡️ ‘Wow that was amazing, those memories are never gonna leave my brain. It was so good.’ (Jensen)

☄️ ‘Sarah had a brilliant time, thank you for such an amazing class. We love experiments.’

💫 ‘Great scientist session. Isla really enjoyed it. Thanks so much.’

💥 ‘Kids had a blast, thanks so much.’

⚡️ ‘I loved today, it was amazing - especially getting to eat the Skittles too!’ (Patrick) 🤣

☄️ ‘Fionn loved science today. Thank you so much. We may redo the egg one.’ 😂

💫 ‘Mummy that was so cool, the Skittles made such a cool rainbow and that volcano was so funny. I thought it was going to cover the whole table! I will need to do that egg one again but because it busted on me!’ (Another 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ from Meabh)

💥 ‘Ellie loved today. She loved the volcano. I loved the egg. Fab session.’

Many thanks to Professor Adam for hosting and to the parents who sent these great photos. Apologies if there are lots of hyper kids in your households tonight after feasting on the leftover Skittles! 🤣🤣

... developing lifelong skills - perseverance, concentration, risk management, negotiating, turn taking.

An external evaluation of our play service in December 2020 found:

‘Parents tell us that their children “flourish” and “blossom” through the play sessions. Children become more confident and independent ... Along with increased levels of confidence and resilience, deaf children are also developing self-advocacy skills. Parents recognise that their deaf children are asking for what they need, asking more questions, and expressing more opinions.’
