Welcome To The Nutty Scientists Franchise Opportunity!

Nutty Scientists® is a leading global provider of scientific activities for children of all ages, and we’re an ideal franchise opportunity for all types of people. If you want to make a difference in the way children perceive and learn science and you have the ability to market the service and programs we offer to the schools and families in your community – a Nutty Scientists franchise could be a perfect fit.

Join A Worldwide Franchise Network

Nutty Scientists has franchised locations in more than 40 countries across the globe and our reach continues to expand every day. Each franchisee plays a special role in their community, but their main responsibility is to enhance children’s lives by making science fun.

The “Nutty” Is What Makes Us Memorable

It’s true, one of the main differentiators between Nutty Scientists® and other kids learning franchises is that we aren’t afraid to get a little wacky.

Our franchisees and their staff create fun, hands-on, spectacular interactive activities in the form of shows or workshops related to science, which incorporate aspects of technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM). In addition, we pride ourselves on incorporating an artistic component, tying art with science. We consider ourselves experts in “edutainment” (entertainment + education), which means that we truly engage children – through participation, experimentation and observation.

Why It Matters So Much

Did you know? On a global scale, science is repeatedly the weakest subject in schools. As evidence, a recent Department of Education study reveals that approximately two-thirds of fourth-graders and four-fifths of high-school seniors in the U.S. fail to reach proficiency levels in science.

This is a disturbing trend, as science and math are the basis for the technology that will continue to drive us through the 21st century. If kids aren’t learning the basics, how will they learn more complex science concepts later in life?

Training & Support

We’ve been running the Nutty Scientists® franchise since 1996. We understand that you have not. We will teach you everything we know about finding the best customers, executing the best programs, and keeping people coming back for more.

It Starts With All-Inclusive Initial Training:

5 Days at the Nutty Scientists Corporate Office
This first training course is related to management, marketing, sales techniques, programs, personnel policy and organizational business systems. You’ll also gain access to our training videos and manuals.

5 Days Training at Your Location with One of Our Key Support staff
We will assist you in selecting, instructing and training, your first instructors (creative individuals who will perform the shows and facilitate the workshops). We will then help you jumpstart operations by assisting in the organization of your first promotional activities.

Ongoing Marketing and Operational Support

  • Your own location “microsite” on our Nutty Scientists website. This will provide you with the ability to edit/customize the website to your liking while keeping consistency and uniformity with our brand.
  • Access to the Nutty Scientists intranet where you can download sample proposals, images, videos, scripts, and any other marketing materials you might need.
  • Access to thousands of science experiments and a countless number of workshops (which are continuously being updated with R&D).
  • Telephone and email access to our professional staff during normal working hours/days, as needed.
  • Open communication with other Nutty Scientists franchisees via our intranet and email to share experiences and advice.
  • Initial kit of branded promotional and workshop materials to help with the marketing and development of your business.

Are You A Good Fit?

Over the years we have found that our most successful franchisees have a mix of tangible and intangible qualities. A passion for working with children and a desire to make a difference in your community are two non-negotiable characteristics.

That said, your ability to deliver the unique Nutty Scientists experience in your market hinges on a few concrete factors:

  • You don’t need to have a background in science but rather a strong sales and marketing background with the ability to develop and grow a thriving business.
  • Franchisees must live in the market they wish to operate.
