Generation Science Club

What is Generation Science?
Generation Science is a nationwide touring programme of curriculum-linked science and engineering workshops and shows which visits primary schools all over Scotland. It is the UK’s largest Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) education outreach programme.

What is Generation Science Club?
​Generation Science Club exists as a network of individuals and companies dedicated to engaging the next generation in science and technology through financial support of the Generation Science programme. Funds raised from the Club are primarily used to support young people in areas of disadvantage.

We have recently introduced a number of new entry levels to the Generation Science Club Membership - starting at £250 for an individual member and £2,000 for a corporate membership. A full personal membership of £500 can allow up to 70 children to enjoy one of our curriculum linked shows and workshops and a corporate membership can allow us to visit eight different primary schools.
