At Aberdeen Science Centre, we want to make STEM more accessible.
We have created a wide range of STEM Resources for schools, use at home and in the wider community, so if you are looking for new ideas for the classroom, teaching resources or boredom busters for your children, you’ve come to the right place!
STEM Learning Programme
Aberdeen Science Centre’s STEM Learning Programme forms part of your schools visit to the centre.
Teachers can choose from a wide variety of live shows and workshops, linked to the Curriculum of Excellence, Experiences and Outcomes. Each show and workshop is tailored to different levels of learning and covers an extensive range of STEM topics.
Shows and workshops are approximately 35 – 45 minutes long, followed by free-time for pupils to explore our exhibition floor.
For more information, a list of all available workshops and shows and a handy search function please visit our STEM Learning Programme page.
