As a Fun Scientist your days may involve mixing up potions or launching rockets and even seasonal science experiments at Halloween and Christmas. Fun Science franchisees gain an incredible amount of satisfaction from seeing children growing to love science and developing a passion for investigation and experimenting.
Kids, parents and schools all love our tried and tested programmes which mix fun with learning with link to the national curriculum.
We have links with schools across the country as well as national organisations such as the British Science Association, iFly indoor skydiving centres and the Children’s University.

Fun Science has many successful branches running across the UK from Dorset right up to Glasgow so you can be sure that your investment is in safe hands and that we can deliver what we promise to deliver.
Unlike other similar franchises we do not take a percentage of your turnover but instead our monthly maintenance fee is fixed at just £150 (rising to £250 in year 3), an amount you can make back with just one birthday party.
We also do not require you to buy anything from us and give you access to all your marketing material files so that you can print these yourself or use a local printer if you choose to do so. We do have an online shop but you are not required to make use of this and can buy everything from your own suppliers.
A Fun Science branch running at half capacity (two birthday parties and two after school club sessions per week plus six weeks of holiday activities per year) could make a yearly gross profit of £33,295.65s.
What You Need
This opportunity is perfect for anyone looking for a flexible and rewarding career which is fun, exciting and profitable.
The majority of our sessions and parties last for 1 hour or less so fit easily around your lifestyle and other commitments. If you have children they will love working with you to test activities out and can even attend your holiday clubs and out of school workshops.
The perfect franchisee would be motivated, enthusiastic and have a genuine passion for working with children.
Scientific experience is not essential, as full training will be given in this area and we have qualified scientists on hand to answer any technical questions you may have.
