    Hi, I too listened to the programme. Never heard of Lab_13 before and cannot find it on the net. Any chance you could point me in the right direction? My six year old loves science.

    I heard it and was really interested. I’m a governor at a fab local primary in Oxford with 3 of my children there and they love science. How can I find out more and encourage a Lab 13 for our school? Like Ian above I can’t find anything on the net.

        Hi – this is a bit peculiar, my name is also Esther (also a governor at my sons school, but this time its Suffolk!) and I have been looking for some more info on Lab 13 having listened to Andrea Sella – could you email me some more info too? Many Thanks!
