Fife Science Festival celebrates the contributions of science, technology, engineering and maths with audiences of all ages and backgrounds. As part of this programme of events, we are running a number of school celebration days for primary and secondary schools in the Glenrothes and Cowdenbeath areas.
Our School Celebration Days offer FREE half days of extraordinary science experiences for primary (P5–P7) and secondary (S1–S3) pupils in Cowdenbeath and Glenrothes. Activities will run for groups of 20 pupils, with a maximum of 80 pupils in each morning or afternoon. Groups will be given a timetable upon booking which will allow all pupils to experience each activity.
All events will run 10am – 12.15pm or 12.45pm – 3pm.
