Talk Science @ Irvine Bay 2014-16

The RSE Talk Science @ Irvine Bay programme will be continuing until Summer 2016.  The programme includes talks and workshops for school pupils (primary and secondary) and the general public, focussing on science, engineering and IT. We are looking for additional talks to include within this programme. If you or a colleague would be interested in contributing a talk to this programme, please contact Kate Kennedy, RSE Project Officer.

This exciting education programme for schools and the wider public includes talks, lectures, exhibitions and workshops focused on the ongoing regeneration of the Irvine Bay area, and includes topics such as:

  • Science (particularly life sciences)
  • Engineering
  • Information and Communications Technology
  • Manufacturing
  • Entrepreneurship

Local primary and secondary schools are invited to participate in talks and workshops delivered by RSE Fellows and other experts, with events tailored for different age groups. All school activities will have strong links to the Curriculum for Excellence. Other events will take place at venues across the Irvine Bay area.

Primary schools

RSE Fellows, RSE Young Academy members and other experts, keen to enthuse and excite pupils, will visit primary schools to introduce inventions, discoveries and the scientists that have a strong connection with Irvine Bay.

Secondary schools

The RSE's Fellows and other experts will deliver talks for secondary schools with particular reference to science, life sciences, IT, engineering and manufacturing.
