Children’s Activities

Our aims when working with children :

Getting children inspired towards science and technology is part of what we want to do. Their success and future opportunities will largely be governed by how well they can grasp science and its related technologies. Even artists increasingly use technology to express their artistic talent. Science and technology touches every aspect of our lives.

So we want to make hard concepts easy to understand and encourage children to experiment “hands-on”.

To this end we work with the Aberdeen Science Centre (ASC) who bring out science workshops in some of the school holidays. We also run some workshops ourselves. Details of upcoming events are on our facebook page :

As well as working with ASC as part of their outreach programme, we also aim to support local schools and we are currently running an after school science club with Tarland Primary School.
