FAQ's - Education Visits 2020


Here are answers to some commonly asked questions in relation to education visits to Glasgow Science Centre.

When will Glasgow Science Centre reopen to schools?

We are working hard to be ready to begin opening in October while ensuring that we keep our visitors and staff safe. Due to current restrictions in place we are not able to plan for reopening to schools visits or delivering our On Tour offer in the short term. We will work as quickly as we can towards a safe resumption of activities with schools once restrictions allow. We anticipate this will may not be until 2021.

We would love to still be part of your pupils learning experience while we are unable to welcome you to Glasgow Science Centre. You can find lots of STEM content at here.

We are also developing an online schools only offer. If you are interested to find out more, please get in touch at learninglab@gsc.org.uk
