EDUCATION HARBOUR – WHERE SCIENCE MEETS MAGIC
Education Harbour Ltd was founded by Alan Sheridan in 2008 after six years in science communication left him frustrated by the lack of some of the right basic products to make science fun and more accesible. The first product rainbow glasses for children remain popular in great schools and are just as popular in party bags. Several other holographic diffractions products followed until a breakthrough in 2015 when the BBC chose our eclipse glasses for their own coverage. Thousands of children watched the eclipse safely thanks to our hard work. The rest of 2015 was spent working on the development of our Newton’s Colour Wheel with launches to the education market Association for Science Education Conference 2016 at Birmingham University and then to the retail trade at The Toy Fair 2016.
This new product also sees the theme of the company moving more towards the ‘Science Meets Magic’ theme which will drive the development process as we continue to seek ways to better serve our customers. Our partnership with Octagon Studio adds Augmented Reality to our portfolio of fun, learning products and takes us into the heart of the tech arena. 2018 began with recognition of Humanoid 4D+ as a ‘Tech for Teachers Awards’ Finalist and enhanced interest from educational wholesalers to feature our products in their catalogues making it even easier for schools to make their purchases. We will also use 2018 to continue to improve packaging to both add ‘kerb’ appeal and reduce environmental impact across our ranges.
