· November 3, 2023

Mum of three Sandra Beale started Toddler and Early Years STEM sessions when her middle son was 9 months old. He’s 9 now! What started as entertainment solely for her baby soon grew after visiting friends were amazed at a 9-month-old doing science experiments and wanted their children to participate in the sessions.

Since then, the sessions have grown and have appeared several times on the BBC, BBC Tiny Happy People, BBC Radio, local newspapers and magazines and were nominated for a STEM Initiative of the Year Award at the Cambridge Science and Technology Awards. Sandra’s work has also attracted the attention of the Princess of Wales, who has written a number of supportive letters for Sandra’s STEAM sessions over the years.

The sessions are free and are held at Sandra’s home and also now at La Boîte cafe, Saffron Waldon.
