Youth Consultation Group

At the end of 2017 we formed the Youth Consultation Group for the Edinburgh Science Festival, a selection of talented 12-18 year-olds who worked on ideas and making decisions to help the Festival connect with their generation.

They assisted in the creative development of the Festival’s 2018 theme: Life, the Universe and Everything. The team worked on innovative events and fresh experiences which are relevant to them and the upcoming world of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The group created and ran several events, including a hands-on crime scenario called Escape the Fake, were they joined the team of experts to analyse the staged crime scene and escape the pathology room.

Supported by Scotland’s Year of Young People 2018

In 2019 the Group created and delivered another event for the Edinburgh Science Festival called Generation Space. Generation Space took over one of the rooms at Pleasance, and was packed full of space-themed activities, such as reaction-time testing, space food and extreme environments.
