Specialist S.T.E.A.M. courses 

Safari Phil has developed specialist courses to introduce the S.T.E.A.M. fields of study to children of all ages. He utilises his knowledge of all things geeky and scientific, along with the animals he travels with, to help explain complicated subjects in a fun relatable way, encouraging the next generation to pursue the fascinating S.T.E.A.M. careers!

Along with his expert Critter Crew, Safari Phil has created 2 differing levels of S.T.E.A.M. courses.

His introduction course focuses on engaging younger minds, helping them to think scientifically and gain a better understanding of the natural world around them.

Safari Phil also offers advanced courses for older students, which can feature specialist expert panels, such as a marine biologist, animal behaviourist and bio chemist

(depending on the subjects being covered, and availability of specialist on your chosen date).

Junior Introduction to S.T.E.A.M.

He can tailor specialist courses to include a Marine Biologist, Animal Behaviourist, and Bio Chemist.

Whether in the classroom, or through interactive lectures, we have a package to suit.


The sciences cover so many amazing subjects! From biology to chemistry, Safari Phil relates these complicated principles to the natural world, and explains how scientists are helping animals with breakthroughs, as well as gaining a better understanding of nature!

Students will have fun learning about the physics of a grasshoppers jump,  the defensive biochemistry of millipedes & venom toxicology.


From the phone or computer you're viewing this awesome website on, to satellites orbiting the earth above us, technology is everywhere! Safari Phil gives children a hands on experience with 'Tools of the Trade' testing out animal keeping equipment and explaining the technology behind it!


Discover how humans are attempting to replicate a spiders silk for computers, and how technological advances are helping to save animals. 


Solving puzzles and building stuff! The brilliant world of engineering! Architects are looking evermore so at animals and nature to help solve modern building problems in an ecological way, and engineers are increasingly focusing on biomimicry within their designs.

Safari Phil encourages pupils to look to nature for solutions to engineering issues, and animal engineers themselves.


It's becoming increasingly important for those in the scientific fields

of study to be able to clearly convey complicated ideas in an understandable/interesting way. By working with scientists and engineers, artists can help better explain the natural world.

Safari Phil's Critter Creative dedicate their time to producing engaging, visual, learning resources for every age and educational level .


Mathematics really is universal, and can be found in all aspects of nature. Once you're shown the mathematical patterns of the Fibonacci sequence, you'll be noticing it everywhere, from the way petals on flowers grow, to the spiral of a shell!

As well as using mathematics to explain the world around us, participants will also learn which species are capable of using maths.
