ASC IN THE HIGHLANDS AND ISLANDS
Since 2019, Aberdeen Science Centre has given communities in the Highlands and Islands the chance to be involved with up to date and exciting science. Working with partners, such as High Life Highland’s libraries service, the Ranger service and Men’s Sheds, we have delivered workshops on the how the brain works, mental health and sports science in Gairloch, Dingwall, Achiltibuie, Ullapool, Portree and Lochinver. As Covid19 restrictions ease, we look forward to extending our range of activities to include library family fun days and other gatherings right across the Highlands and Islands.
