Project Science is series of simple hands-on activities that aim to support primary school classroom practitioners to use the scientific method and explore real-life research with their learners.

Your class can take part in a virtual visit to the Roslin Institute, meet one of our scientists, ask them your questions, see them do a live demo and find out about science in the real world!

In this microbiology toolkit, for teachers working with pupils aged 8 - 14 years old, we provide free downloadable classroom resources to support your learners to use the scientific method to investigate pond water microorganisms.

We are proud to be a Scotland's Regional Champion and have a selection of hands-on investigations that can be used at home or in the classroom to help support your young science explorers to ask and answer their own scientific questions.

These step-by-step, fun, curriculum-linked investigations develop your young explorer's understanding of how science works and prepares them to create their own investigations. 

Online educational resources, for P6 to S6 pupils, to support learning in the classroom and information about our teacher professional development courses.
