Autumn 2013 Startup Science Masterclasses Dates Announced

Posted 10/09/2013

Twice a year, the RSE and partner universities deliver a series of free science masterclasses across Scotland. At these masterclasses, S1 and S2 students get up to all sorts of scientific mischief and mayhem, dissections and designs: creating things – from bagpipes to perfume; breaking down plant DNA; exploring the bug world around us; learning how to design things – from planes to bridges; and even indulging in a round of chemical cluedo!
