Meet-up Details 

Families attending the meet-up will receive a warm welcome from Marie (our sessional worker).

The session will begin at 1.30 pm with some introductions, icebreakers and games led by Marie whilst the Science Workshop team set up.

The Science workshop will cover:

  • Fizzing Potions, Bubbling Concoctions and Giant Smoke Rings - guaranteed to astonish the children.
  • Sweet Making as a Science Experiment - they'll be grinning from ear to ear when they taste them.
  • "Magic" Tricks and Spectacular Science Experiments - where the children's mouths will fall wide open with amazement!
  • Gooey Slime-Making - that the children can take home and treasure!

The science workshop will last about an hour, there will then be some time towards the end to chat, share, play a few more games etc. before wrapping the session up by no later than 4pm. 

This event is primarily aimed at children with alopecia aged under 12. If your child is outside of this age bracket please contact: [email protected] to see if the meet-up would be suitable.

    Sessional Worker Details  

    Your Alopecia UK sessional worker for this event is Marie (pictured to the right)

    Hello, I am Marie! I have had alopecia since I was 24. It started as alopecia areata and my patches varied in size over a number of years. Later on, it developed into alopecia totalis. For 16 years I chose to wear a wig but then on my 40th birthday, I decided to show all the world and have since spent every day wigless, only wearing a hat to protect her head from the sun or the cold and spreading awareness of alopecia. I love netball and badminton and have been an Alopecia UK volunteer for many years, I currently run the Birmingham Adults support group too! I look forward to meeting you all soon :) 

    We are able to run this session for free, thanks to:
