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 Primary workshops, for pupils from P6 an P7, are fun, hands-on and curriculum-linked learning experiences that reveal the world of science and veterinary work. We give your pupils the opportunity to work with and speak with real scientists, vets and animal nurses while using their own scientific skills to reveal the world of animal science by doing it themselves.


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.
