Talks for Schools

RSE Schools Talks

Each year the Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE) delivers a series of talks and lectures ‎in schools across Scotland. These talks are FREE, curriculum-linked and available at ‎any point throughout the school year.


Our speakers are experts in their fields and cover a range of subject areas, from ‎Science to English Literature to Art and History. Many are willing to work with the ‎teachers to tailor their talk to areas most relevant to class curriculums, and to different ‎age-groups and class sizes.‎

Free to Schools

These events are FREE to schools! The RSE will cover all speakers' costs, ‎including travel and accommodation. All the school needs to provide is a venue for ‎the talk, and of course the audience! Teachers are also asked to supervise the students ‎during the talk and provide feedback after the event.‎

School Talks Programme

Here you will find a copy of our school talks programme and application form. In this programme will get a flavour of just some of the speakers we have available, ‎along with their lecture topics. However, if there is something in particular you ‎would like to hear about,  we will endeavour to find a speaker to ‎suit.

The talks which have taken place have been located in a variety of areas throughout Scotland some examples include - Aberdeenshire, Elgin, Lochaber, Glasgow and even the Shetland Islands!

If you want to book a school talk for your own school or want to find out more, just contact a member of the education team for more information.
