Alongside the festival activities our Education programme operates all year round. A key part of our activities is Generation Science which helps bring science to life in classrooms all over Scotland.
Generation Science shows tour all over Scotland, bringing educational and entertaining performances and hands-on activities to your classroom. We have an incredible 21 years’ experience of bringing science to life for school pupils – since we started, we’ve reached more than a million pupils.
We constantly develop our shows to meet the needs of teachers in line with the Curriculum for Excellence, and consistently receive great feedback. Our aim is to improve the teaching of science in Scottish primary schools and support teachers to deliver the curriculum. In essence, we make learning and teaching science fun. We can work with schools on science weeks, transition projects or individual science days.
This year, we’re presenting revised versions of some of our most popular shows, Good Vibrations and Power from the People. And, after listening to feedback from teachers, we’ve also reworked our home insulation workshop, Cosy Cosy Challenge, to give pupils even more interactive learning on the subject of energy conservation. You can find all these shows, plus regular favourites, such as Little Giants and Fizz Boom Bang, in the brochure.
