Background to GSC Learning Lab
Since 2001, Glasgow Science Centre has been delivering educational experiences to learners of all ages. From stargazing in the Planetarium to DNA extraction in the Lab, we have long been committed to supporting teachers to deliver curriculum experiences and outcomes.
When we closed our doors in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we continued our mission to support educators and to inspire everyone with STEM. With pupils no longer able to visit us – and GSC on Tour unable to visit them – we created an online learning experience suitable for the classroom and home. GSC Learning Lab was born out of necessity but has developed into a key part of our education offer for the future.
