On Tour for Schools
Glasgow Science Centre On Tour offers interactive STEM activities delivered in schools to enhance classroom learning. We have two programmes Bodyworks On Tour and Powering the Future on Tour offering curriculum-linked experiences for pupils in P1-S3.
On Tour visits are subsidised by our partners and will cost you only £300 + VAT for a full day of activities. We can deliver a maximum of 5 sessions in a Primary School day and 6 sessions in a High School day. All we need is step free access to your school hall (or similar open space) and access to power. Our team will work with you to plan the visit to fit around your school day.
