CFG_logo_200Welcome to the Future Group’s website. We are based in Tarland, and aim 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 and the Aberdeen Science Centre (previously Satrosphere). All activities are at the MacRobert Hall in Tarland Square.

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.

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 below.

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

Finally, we have set up our other pages to provide you with useful 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.
