Easter Bush Science Outreach Centre

Schools Learning Programme

We have an exciting programme of curriculum-linked, hands-on science workshops and activities for primary, secondary and international schools. All workshops are led by experienced science communication professionals and are supported by scientists, vets and vet nurses.


Our P6 & P7 Primary workshops are fun, hands-on, curriculum-linked learning experiences that reveal the world of science and veterinary work.


Our Secondary school workshops, for pupils from S1 to S6, are all curriculum-linked, interactive and reveal the real-life science being done at The Roslin Institute, the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies and across the University of Edinburgh. We give your pupils the opportunity to speak with real scientists, vets and animal nurses.
