Festival Schools’ Programme

Soldering at Strathdon

The schools programme covered ten schools across Upper Deeside and Upper Donside : Aboyne, Ballater, Crathie, Braemar, Strathdon, Towie, Logie Coldstone, Tarland, Craigievar and Lumphanan.

By going into the classrooms in the schools we ensured that every child in school that day, had access to a quality technology activity, reaching over 700 children.

  • 441 primary children soldered and took home a Madlab electronic kit (classes P4-7)
  • 249 children made a cardboard Rude Mechanicals windmill, tested it and took it home (classes P1-P3)
