Aberdeen Science Centre continues online programme

Aberdeen Science Centre (ASC) is continuing to share online resources across social media to inspire those into the world of Science, Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM).

The online programme is providing engaging content on a variety of subjects including chemistry, space, biology, physics and the weather.

Offering content which is suitable for all ages, the posts enable families to try easy yet exciting experiments, such as chromatography or discovering Centripetal Force.

Elaine Holland, head of operations at Aberdeen Science Centre said: “We have been sharing interesting and thought-provoking content from the likes of NASA, YouTube and other science centres across the country to promote ways of continuing STEM education at home.

“The posts provide help on how to create popular and easy experiments which are doable using household items, and it’s a fun activity for the family to do together.

“With the ongoing restrictions in place and school children continuing their lessons at home, we’re also posting fun facts or inspiring information to keep the audiences mind engaged in the world of STEM!”

ASC will continue to run online activities for the foreseeable future. The activities can be accessed on the Aberdeen Science Centre Facebook page.

The centre, on Constitution Street, is undergoing a multi-million-pound redevelopment and is due to open later in the year, when it is safe to do.

The ambitious project includes an extension and creation of a new mezzanine floor – almost doubling the exhibition space – and exposing the roof structure to allow natural light to flood into the building.

The £4.7million redevelopment has been made possible by support and funding from the Inspiring Science Fund – a partnership between the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and Wellcome.

Additional support has been granted by Opportunity North East (ONE) and Aberdeen City Council.
