Easter Bush Science Outreach Centre

About Us

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, activities for teachers and interactive lab-based sessions for community groups of all ages, all supported by our researchers, students and clinicians.

If you would like to know more please visit our workshop pages (schools learning programme, family and adult learning, or college learning programme) and if you have any other questions or ideas for an activity that you would like us to run in EBSOC, please get in touch via our contact form.
