Edinburgh International Science Festival 

Edinburgh Science is an international educational charity that inspires people of all ages and backgrounds to experience the wonder of science and technology. Best known for our annual Science Festival and Learning programmes, which bring science to life in schools year-round, we also share our content, passion and expertise internationally through Edinburgh Science Worldwide.

Through Edinburgh Science Learning we are committed to communicating the excitement and benefits of science in innovative and engaging ways to school pupils, young adults, higher education students and teachers. Our main projects are Generation Science, which visits more than 550 Scottish primary schools every year and Careers Hive, a reimagined careers event aimed at early stage secondary school pupils to highlight the range of employment opportunities and subject choices that are linked to STEM industries. We also run various engagement and skills development projects aimed at teachers and students.
Edinburgh Science is passionate about developing Scotland as a STEM nation. Our Director and Head of Learning sit on various working groups to implement the Scottish Government’s five-year STEM Strategy: Education and Training Strategy for Scotland. These quarterly meetings feed into a high-level implementation group headed by the Chief Scientific Advisor for Scotland.
