Easter Bush Science Outreach Centre

The Easter Bush Science Outreach Centre (EBSOC), is located next to The Roslin Institute on The University of Edinburgh’s Easter Bush Campus.  It is a purpose-built lab space where primary and secondary pupils engage with real-life science.

EBSOC enables school pupils to experience real scientific techniques, perform experiments and explore current research happening across The University of Edinburgh, including at The Roslin Institute.

We also support teachers, who teach STEM subjects, and reveal the world of work in science; supporting Scotland’s Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) strategy.

EBSOC offers a series of primary school workshops, which are aimed at upper primary school pupils (P6-P7, 10 – 12 years old).

All our workshops are:
  • Full-day
  • Hands-on
  • Linked to the “Sciences: Experiences and Outcomes” (Scottish Curriculum for Excellence)

They provide:
  • Real-world connections – actual lab equipment, chance to meet scientists and vets
  • Tangible results – working with real samples 
  • Inspiration-  for studying STEM subjects at secondary school
Please come and visit us at stand E10 to find out how your future scientists can engage with us next academic year.
