Bringing Science Topics Alive in Primary Schools

Our reptile & minibeast encounter sessions are all about learning through engagement & enjoyment. Calm, fun & relaxed delivery creates the best atmosphere for children (& staff) to overcome fears & build confidence too. A living science roadshow.


How We Do It

[Our Asian Forest Scorpion with her babies - Meet The Beasts]Meet The Beasts brings snakes, lizards & minibeasts to visit your school & classroom, creating excitement, intrigue & engagement, bringing science & study topics alive for all ages.

Our engaging, tactile & visceral activities dovetail with your learning plans. We focus on one-to-one interaction with our beautiful animals. Meet snakes, lizards, tarantulas, scorpions, millipedes & cockroaches. See them up-close. Touch & handle where you can.

Stuart's patience & understanding bring a sense of security, fun & achievement to every activity. He understands that not everybody is enthusiastic to meet our beasts for the first time. In his own, unique way, he draws in even the most resistant & afraid through his calm, sensitive & empathetic delivery, so that everyone can understand & participate.

Our sessions promote communication, interaction, socialising & mutual support, even in shy individuals. Children learn important thinking, investigative & problem-solving skills & by facing & overcoming their fears, they grow in confidence.

We love to hear "I could never do that!" change to "I never thought I could do that!" &, from feedback, we know they continue to talk about what they have done long after we've gone!

Why not bet in touch with Meet The Beasts to see how we can help you?

"Thank you so much for a wonderful experience! The children loved it (as did I). We created some information booklets after you left which were full of facts :) It was hands on, engaging, exciting and interesting for the children."
