Toddlers and young children took part in STEM sessions in Saffron Walden to learn about the environment and try science experiments.

Sandra Beale runs the toddler and early years sessions from her home, and started nine years ago as a way to entertain her middle son.

The sessions are now available on the Pebble booking platform at

Attendees can join in person or over Zoom, with sessions held at 9.30am on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, and lasting an hour and a half.

In a session over May half term, children looked at soil erosion and rising sea levels, and earlier this month the children did a marble run and experimented with fizzing hearts, which were provided by Yellow Door Ltd in Cambridge.
