Generation Science

Generation Science brings unique and inspiring science lessons directly to classrooms all over Scotland with a programme of highly interactive shows and hands-on workshops.

In 2020, we have 10 shows and workshops all linked to the Curriculum for Excellence and designed to get your pupils out of their seats and get involved. 

Tour Update for 2020 – Thursday 19 March

Following the closure of schools across Scotland, we will now bring an end to the Generation Science spring tour.

We will continue to work closely with schools over the coming months whilst monitoring the situation and advice given by the government as our priority remains the safety of our staff, the pupils and their teachers. 

We would like to thank our supporters and funders for their understanding at this challenging time.

Summer tour: Monday 27 April to Friday 5 June
