An increasingly important factor among our activities, is Outreach ..... As the name suggests, we are happy to take some of our wonderful collection further afield - or welcome group visits to the Museum at suitable pre-arranged times.
We are especially keen to bring our message to schools, with the specific aim of encouraging school-age children to think about science and engineering and, for older children, to consider a career in these fields. Our philosophy coincides with that of the British Science Association, with whom we have strong links.
We can make our Museum in Burntisland available for private visits by schools and colleges or we can take educational presentations and activities out to them.
This year, we have once again taken part in the National Science and Engineering Week and Fife Science Festival. We've entertained schools, held school Workshops, displayed at the Museum of Flight and took part in the prestigious Science Festival in Orkney and the British Science Festival in Aberdeen. We also played host to the Scottish Microwave Round Table (Mircrowave Radio not Microwave Ovens!) and a local Scout Troupe.
