Update: In line with current Scottish Government guidelines, schools can now make bookings to visit the centre. Please note that school visits will operate slightly differently as per the updated guidelines and will include time on the exhibition floor and a short demo only.

Aberdeen Science Centre provides a wide variety of educational shows, workshops and resources that have been developed for schools to complement and support the Curriculum for Excellence in Scotland. Delivered either at our newly redeveloped centre in Aberdeen, digitally or within an educational setting.
The activities provided at Aberdeen Science Centre reinforce learning in a different way. Pupils have the opportunity to carry out experiments for example using equipment, resources and unique approaches that may not be available in a school setting.
Each session is designed to not only inspire young people in STEM, but to spark a sense of curiosity and exploration.
