Dunbar Science Club | Invitation to deliver workshops @ Bleachingfield Community Centre
Jul 1 all-day

We would like to invite Edinburgh Researchers to deliver workshops for Dunbar Science Club on a Saturday morning during 2017.

Dunbar Science Club

Dunbar Science Club was created in 2011 by a small team of volunteer parents of pupils attending Dunbar Primary School.  Our objective is to inspire and encourage a life-long interest in science amongst children living in the Dunbar Cluster area by running an annual programme of varied workshops provided by local scientists (including volunteer parents) and external providers.

Dunbar Science Club was an initiative of Dunbar PS’s Parent Council’s “Science, Maths, Engineering & Technology Sub Group” that also created the annual award winning community science festival, Dunbar SciFest.

Dunbar Science Club is supported by Community Windpower Ltd, who also support Dunbar SciFest.

Please see the Dunbar Science Club Facebook page and our website to see previous workshop blogs etc.
