School Visits

We look forward to welcoming schools back to Aberdeen Science Centre from 10th May 2021.



In line with current Scottish Government guidelines, schools can now make bookings to visit the centre.

The team are continuing to offer online support and inspiration through the ASC in your Classroom programme – are you looking for ideas to teach in your classroom or want to reinforce a topic you already taught? Or just planning a fun and educational trip for your class? Then look no further! 

We have a wide variety of Educational shows and workshops, which have been thoughtfully developed to complement and support the Curriculum for Excellence (CfE). Each session is designed not only to inspire young people in STEM, but also to spark a sense of curiosity and exploration.
