Generation Science

From February to May, our team of skilled Science Communicators head out across Scotland to bring science to life for primary school pupils with a range of shows and workshops delivered in the classroom. We constantly develop our shows to meet the needs of teachers in line with the Curriculum for Excellence and, with generous support from our sponsors and funders, we remain committed to keeping costs as low as possible. Last year, we received great feedback from the 58,000 pupils and teachers we visited and we look forward to receiving more positive responses to our 2015 tour.

You can view the shows and workshops below and the brochure is available to download now.

The next Generation Science tour will be in 2015 and the dates are as follows:

  • Spring tour: 2 February to 27 March
