Live Science Classes With CBBC’s Maddie Moate

this event has no time specified
Subjects: Science

What to expect

Anyone with CBBC-obsessed kids will recognise Maddie Moate from shows including Did You Know?, in which she investigates how things work, from lifts and escalators to fire engines and the human body. Here, the BAFTA award-winning presenter hosts daily online science classes with co-presenter (and real-life partner) Greg Foot, in which they study topics such as ‘How is a dinosaur fossil made?’, ‘How to make your own astronaut food’ and ‘How clouds are made’. Aimed at kids aged 7+, these sessions are a fun way to learn about science - wherever you are in the world, Maddie and Greg will take you through live experiments (that sometimes go wrong!), hold quizzes and also do some shoutouts at the end of the session. If you're on the hunt for even more online science demonstrations, why not check out Wacky Wednesdays or the Potty Professor?

What you’ll need

  • Pen and paper - If Maddie and Greg make anything during the session, they’ll list the items required for you to recreate afterwards, so be ready to take notes.
  • Strong WiFi connection.

What you’ll do

  • The live sessions are on at 11am every day, Monday - Friday.
  • Maddie and Greg will take you through a different topic per session. This is not an interactive class, so all you need to do is sit back with your child and enjoy!




At Kidadl we pride ourselves on offering families original ideas to make the most of time spent together at home or out and about, wherever you are in the world. We strive to recommend the very best things that are suggested by our community and are things we would do ourselves - our aim is to be the trusted friend to parents.

We try our very best, but cannot guarantee perfection. We will always aim to give you accurate information at the date of publication - however, information does change, so it’s important you do your own research, double-check and make the decision that is right for your family.

Kidadl provides inspiration to entertain and educate your children. We recognise that not all activities and ideas are appropriate and suitable for all children and families or in all circumstances. Our recommended activities are based on age but these are a guide. We recommend that these ideas are used as inspiration, that ideas are undertaken with appropriate adult supervision, and that each adult uses their own discretion and knowledge of their children to consider the safety and suitability.

Kidadl cannot accept liability for the execution of these ideas, and parental supervision is advised at all times, as safety is paramount. Anyone using the information provided by Kidadl does so at their own risk and we can not accept liability if things go wrong.
