Our Impact

Every April, we run the educational, inspiring and fun Edinburgh Science Festival, packed full of amazing science activities, experiences, talks and exhibitions, for children and grown-ups.

“I really enjoyed the moment that you could see on a visitors face that the science you were explaining just sort of clicked into place, especially if it was then followed up by related questions and allowed them to fully engage with the content.” – Science Communicator, 2021 

 

Throughout the year, we visit thousands of primary school children across Scotland, bringing our hands-on, interactive Generation Science workshops to their classrooms. In 2021, we re-imagined these into all-in-one workshop boxes with expert guidance and support through videos.

“It was a fantastic experience which we all enjoyed. Everyone engaged with it and it exceeded my expectations of the learning experience that the box would provide.” – Teacher, 2021
