Our Bookshop in Tring are very excited to announce they will be hosting a Children’s Science Week.
Starting 25 April, it will feature some amazing authors, scientists, professors and doctors who will be coming to Tring for a number of school visits (including Grove Road, Turnfurlong, Brookmead and Aston Clinton) in the area and then, each afternoon, will participate in a general event in the High Street Baptist Church.
In this inaugural celebration of Science for Children, the focus is on engineering, astronomy and nature.
