We have an incredible 25 years' experience in delivering science education activities and since we started we've reached almost a million pupils.
The main project in our education programme is Generation Science, which visits schools across Scotland from February to May each year. In our most recent tour we delivered over 1,600 interactive science shows and workshops in over 600 primary schools, reaching over 58,000 pupils.
All Generation Science shows and workshops are linked to the experiences and outcomes of the Scottish Government's Curriculum for Excellence. 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!
The next Generation Science tour will run from January to May 2017 and booking for the activities is open now.

This exciting immersive experience ran from 29 February to 4 March 2016 in the National Museum of Scotland, delivering activities to groups of school pupils in S1-S3. Planning for the delivery of Careers Hive activities in 2017 is currently underway.
