Edinburgh International Science Festival - 5 - 20 April 2015

blog for us

Edinburgh International Science Festival is an educational charity that inspires people of all ages and backgrounds to discover the wonder of the world around them. The annual Science Festival was the world's first celebration of science and technology, and is still one of Europe's largest. Of equal importance, however, is the educational programme which brings science to life in Scottish classrooms throughout the year.

We are looking for probationer and early phase teachers to tell us about their own experiences of teaching Science. If you would be interested in writing a one-off blog about this topic then please get in touch as we would love to hear from you.

We thought it might be helpful if we set the record straight on some issues.
