Edinburgh Science

Edinburgh Science Foundation is an educational charity that inspires people of all ages and backgrounds around the world to experience the wonder of science and technology. Best known for Edinburgh’s annual Science Festival – the world’s first science festival and still one of the world’s largest – and for our Learning programmes that sees Generation Science tour Scotland and bring science to life in classrooms throughout the year and promotes STEM careers to teens through initiatives such as Careers Hive. An increasing worldwide element shares our content, passion and expertise more widely through an extensive portfolio of international projects.

Our mission is to inspire, encourage and challenge people of all ages and backgrounds to explore, understand and engage with the world around them and to communicate the educational, social and economic benefits of science and technology.

 

Our language is that of live experiences that amaze, inform and entertain in equal measure. We put the customer first whether they are the public, school teacher or pupil. We want to be the best before we are the largest. We thrive on creativity, rely upon professionalism and insist on accuracy. We believe in testing what we do assuming that rarely can an event not be improved. We respect and nurture the partnerships on which we depend for support, people and ideas. We know we are only as good as the people we work with and so value them all, here and abroad.
