Learning Lab: Powering the future


Learning Lab – Powering the Future

Aberdeen Science Centre is excited to present ‘Learning Lab- Powering The Future.’  Designed by Glasgow Science Centre, this free programme supports teachers with curriculum-linked resources and inspires students with captivating and practical activities.  

Delivered by you, the class teacher, pupils will explore renewable technologies, the path to net zero,  and discover that they already have the skills needed for a future in the energy industry.

Thanks to funding from OPITO, participation is free for our local schools.
