The 2013 touring programme for Edinburgh International Science Festival is out now. Generation Science shows tour all over Scotland, bringing educational and entertaining performances and hands-on activities to the 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.
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.
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 reports from the 55,000 pupils and teachers we visited.
All shows and workshops are available to visit schools from January – May 2013. Visit the Education section of our website to find out more and download the brochure.
