What others say about Fun Scientists
“I am the mother of 4 boys (ages 14, 12, 8 and 6) and I can honestly say that Farooq’s party for my 8 year old was the best one we have ever had. Farooq took the time to speak to my son on the phone to find out his interests and talk through what sort of experiments he would like. All my boys attended the party and all were enthralled by the experiments. Farooq held their attention marvellously, was engaging, charming and thoroughly delighted all the boys and girls. Their comments as they left the party were that it was the best party they had ever been to! Much highly deserved praise for a fantastic individual. Thank you so much Farooq for all the effort and hard work you put in to making Matthew’s party a very special memory to hold in his heart forever. Michelle x”
“You were absolutely wonderful today Farooq. The girls just had the best time. Charli told me tonight that she wished all her parties would be like today! That is a real credit to you. You were fantastic with the girls and completely inspiring. I really believe you opened the girls eyes up the joys of chemistry today! You were also a real pleasure to have around. A truly lovely person. I am sure I will be seeing you again and I will definitely be talking to my work colleagues about you. Huge thanks again Farooq.”
“My 8 year old son has participated in Fun Science for years. Every week Gray can’t wait to tell me all the cool things they made, learned and to share his new knowledge. It is always one of the MOST popular clubs at school. Farooq and his team are excellent at making science fun and exciting. They are warm, friendly and engaging. In addition to the school club, Farooq kindly has helped with my charity Halloween Party every year. We host 60 + children for a Halloween party and it wouldn’t be right without some MAD Science. The children have made Slime and Bouncy Balls, and they just love it. Most of them know him from school and are thrilled to see him at the party. He has become such a part of our school and community, we can’t thank him enough!”
I just wanted to say that the party you organised for my 8 year old was one of the best parties we’ve ever had. We had a science birthday party with another organisation and yours was so much better. We loved the enthusiasm, energy and humour you brought to the party as well as being able to keep a number of 8 year olds fully enraptured for 2 hours! Thanks for accommodating her special requests and being flexible as well.
I was looking for something different for my sons 6th birthday. After deciding on a science theme I decided to go with Fun Scientists and so glad I did! Farooq and his assistant Emma were brilliant, they kept the all children (and parents) entertained for the entire time. The experiments were fantastic and some of them the children made themselves, e.g putty, that they could take home with them which helped with filling party bags. Everyone had lots of fun and going by what I overheard some children saying to their parents ‘it was the best party ever!’ I would definitely recommend Fun Scientists to everyone!
Thank you again
All the best
You are simply amazing! The kids had an unbelievable time today! First thing Michael said when we got home: ” can I have a science party again next year???”
All the mothers texted me about how brilliant they thought you were today! You really know how to hold their attention and you packed so much into 2 hours!
Hope you made it to your train on time- enjoy your sister’s wedding!!!
Thanks again for a memorable party!!
Happy New Year! I just wanted to say a huge thank you for absolutely nailing the XXXXX party in December – I was totally overexcited to be doing a party for these guys, they are a big deal, and you have really helped to cement our relationship with them, we’ve had nothing but great feedback from them and they are keen to do another party this year. Thank you for being ACE, and thank you for being so great, all through Christmas.
