Hands-on Science Workshops- Getting Hands-on with Real-life Science
The Easter Bush Science Outreach Centre is a unique place where you can get hands-on with real-life science
Located on The University of Edinburgh's Easter Bush Campus and surrounded by world-leading centres for animal science research and veterinary care, the Easter Bush Science Outreach Centre (EBSOC) is a purpose-built teaching laboratory where visiting groups can experience real-life, hands-on science.
We offer a programme of hands-on, curriculum-linked workshops for school pupils in P6 to S6 and interactive lab-based sessions for community groups of all ages.
We aim to deliver high-quality STEM learning experiences for school pupils, their teachers and the wider community.
We want to increase everyone's science capital and provide a positive and realistic experience of science.
All of our workshops are:
- Connected to real-world research and/or clinical work
And all of our workshops provide:
- Real-life, tangible results
- Opportunities to meet our scientists from The Roslin Insitute and clinicians from The Royal (Dick) School of Vet Studies
- Inspiration around STEM subjects and careers in STEM
*All of our school workshops are fully linked with the Scottish school curriculum and we are happy to work with teachers from outside Scotland to provide relevant links to other curricula.To book this activity, please contact:
