Strath Science Scouts

The Strath Science Scouts Programme aims to promote the study of science at school and university through peer to peer mentoring and support by Strathclyde Science students. The Programme offers activities for both primary and secondary schools:

  • Secondary schools: visits to schools to give short presentations, lead small group discussions and attend school science events
  • Primary school: visits to schools to run fun science activities and attend school science events; helping to run sessions at the University Fab Lab

Teams of Scouts will run these activities and, as far as possible, they will be encouraged to visit their former school to act as role models that pupils can easily relate to through the familiarity of shared school experiences. Both the school and the Scouts will be involved in the planning of the visit and the type of activity that will be delivered. See details of some recent activities
