Generation Science is the schools touring programme from Edinburgh International Science Festival. Each year we deliver interactive science shows and hands-on workshops in primary schools all over Scotland. In 2019 the tour runs from 28 January - 24 May. On offer this year are 15 workshops each exploring areas within the Curriculum for Excellence, Planet Earth, Technologies, Biological Systems, Materials and Forces, Eletricity and Waves.
Our brochure has breakdowns of each workshop, what's involved, and exactly what the children will take away.
