CFG_logo_200Welcome to the Future Group’s website. We are small Charity  (SC047033) based in Tarland, which aims to make science and technology accessible by providing scientific talks and activities locally.

To provide our local talks and activities we work with the outreach section of the University of Aberdeen, Robert Gordon University and the Aberdeen Science Centre .

Want to see what we’ve been doing over the last year? Then see our Annual Review 2016/2017

Looking for a local After School Science Club?

Our schedule of adult winter talks is coming soon. The first talk is on Wednesday, September 20th.

See our take on the Emerging Technologies and give us your feedback. We have put this up to stimulate discussion. There is lots of talk of job losses due to new technology, but there are also big opportunities for you and your children. Are they learning the right skills though? Go and have a look and see what you think.

Want to join our e-mail list so we warn you of up-coming events, email us at info@futuregroup.org.uk

Looking for links to other science sites and resources? Look for the “LINKS” section at the end of each page or click on the links inserted into the text.

Catch up with us also on Facebook 

Are you a retired scientist or technologist? We are looking for help with running after school science sessions and holiday workshops. We would welcome anyone who has a passion for their topic. We are looking for both ex-researchers and science teachers, as well as those who have hands on engineering, computing and technical skills. Your input can be as flexible as you like, either helping us design sessions or running a session or two. You never know, we might even aspire to Robot Wars with your help! Contact us on the email address above.

We thank those who support us financially : Marsterman LLP, Rotary Club of Aboyne, Uppper Deeside, the Jennie S Gordon Memorial Foundation,  and Etrappe Royale

We thank those who support us with speakers and workshops : the University of Aberdeen, Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen Science Centre

We thank all our local volunteers who bring their passion and enthusiasm and skills.
