Looking for a local After School Science Club?
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 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; and all our local volunteers who bring their passion and enthusiasm and skills.
And we thank Chris Briggs for his wonderful picture of the mad hare which is this year’s Festival logo picture.
