Teacher Support and Resources

Generation Science 

The Generation Science education experience doesn’t end when we leave the classroom, we also issue everyone who books one of our shows or workshops with a set of teachers notes. These resources have been specially developed to provide inspiration and ideas to further explore the science behind our activities.

Teachers notes are available to download within the Generation Science activity listings.


Edinburgh Science Learning offers further training and skills development.
