Science from the Start is currently supported by an outreach grant from the Royal Society of Chemistry, and can also deliver sessions outside this grant. All events feature parent/carer led activities to promote play-based family learning.
The project is run by Dr Laura Hobbs, who has a research background in volcanology and experience in science outreach and supporting adult and child learning. General information and interactive online support are delivered through the Facebook page.
