We have an incredible 30 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 January to May each year. In our most recent tour we delivered over 1,600 interactive science shows and workshops in more than 560 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 and our 2019 programme will be published in September 2018.

Our newest education project, Careers Hive was designed to open students eyes to the wealth of opportunities available to those who have studied STEM subjects. Careers Hive 2019 will run from Monday 25 February – Friday 1 March at the National Museum of Scotland.
Live For It!
We worked in partnership with Diabetes Scotland to deliver Live For It!, a health education programme for P7-S2 pupils, designed to help tackle childhood obesity and highlight the possible risks of developing Type 2 diabetes in later life from 2011-2015.
In 2015 we were also out on tour with Fuselab Go. In this innovation and creativity ‘boot camp’ 15-18 year olds are challenged to come up with innovations to aid the development of a sustainable way of life on a new planet over two days of intensive workshops, presentations and activities.
