School Visits

For those bringing their class to Aberdeen Science Centre we offer a range of enriching educational shows and workshops that have been developed to complement and support the Curriculum for Excellence. 

Our activities and two-floor science centre reinforce learning in a different way, allowing pupils to engage in hands-on learning using equipment, resources and unique approaches that may not be available in a traditional school setting.

Each session is thoughtfully designed to not only inspire young people in science, but to spark a sense of curiosity and exploration.
