Fun Science: Liz Sonier
Liz runs the North Yorkshire branch of Fun Science which was launched on the 29th November 2014.
As a mum of five, with three children under the age of 10, Liz wanted a career that would fit around her family commitments.
Fun Science has given Liz the opportunity to start making money right away, plus she is able to continue to educate her three youngest children at home.
We’ve asked Liz some questions about her experience starting up a Fun Science Branch.
What made you choose Fun Science?
“I chose Fun Science over the other franchises I looked at because it was affordable. Also, after checking out your website I felt that it was a business that I would really enjoy doing”
What was the best bit of the start-up package/training?
“I don't know if I have a best bit of the Fun Science franchise. The start up package/training was great and I’m very happy with everything. It is great to have the manuals to follow but I really liked that you went through them all and all the lesson plans. I could have probably just followed the manuals, but it was great that you went through everything with me as it made me feel like I was not just being thrown in the deep end. The equipment is great and everything is included, even the eggs!
Would you recommend the Fun Science franchise to other people?
“Yes I would recommend the Fun Science franchise to other people. It is very good value for money as you get a lot of start-up equipment.”
As a home educator, Liz is planning to focus on workshops for other home educating parents to begin with. Liz also plans to run Saturday morning science clubs and holiday clubs which her children will be able to attend.
