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 :

We also publish them here or to be certain you do not miss our, make sure you are on our email list by contacting us on


Chemistry workshop

We also aim to support local schools and we are currently running after school science clubs with Tarland (including Logie Coldstone) Primary Schools, Towie Primary School and Craigievar Primary School.

These are open to children in classes 5 to 7 and are focused on ensuring that children get :

  • A good understanding of the concepts that underpin science and technology
  • Hands on experience of carrying out experiments

Sampling aquatic life

Our approach is designed to complement what is taught in the classroom so we tackle science that is both on the curriculum as well as not on the curriculum. We hope to encourage your children to find science, mathematics and technology easy, fun and endlessly fascinating. Our job is to make difficult concepts easy to understand.

The Clubs are a volunteer led Clubs under the school’s supervision and insurance. Timings are:

  • Craigievar Primary School : 3.30 to 4.30 every Monday.
  • Towie Primary School : 4.00 to 5.00 pm every Tuesday from 31st October.
  • Tarland and Logie Coldstone* Primary Schools : 3.30 to 4.30 every Thursday.
