Educational Partners

Glasgow Science Centre is proud to work with a number of educational partners to deliver our extensive program of structured learning experiences, carefully aligned with the Curriculum for Excellence and National Qualification Stages.

Amongst our educational partners are:



OPAL Explore Nature

The Open Air Laboratories (OPAL) is an environmental project which aims to connect children and adults with the natural envirnoment. We give everybody the chance to explore nature through our six surveys, which investigate the health of the UK envirnoment.

Our surveys have been designed by scientists, to be carried out by you and your class. Our team of Community Scientists can tailor activities to fit around the Curriculum for Excellence, to help you meet your outdoor education targets.

From bug hunts to pond dipping, pupils will learn basic survey techiques and have the chance to contribute real scientific data to a UK wide environment report. Read more about outdoor learning activities at Glasgow Science Centre.
