Friday 7th June


The Wellcome Trust sponsored drinks reception in the exhibition hall

Mind buzzing after two days of the conference?

Excited about primary science and wondering how you could make a bigger impact in your school?

Come and join The Wellcome Trust for a drink in the exhibition hall on Friday 7th June from 5.00 – 6.30 pm to explore more about the science of learning and how you could use research to inform practice in your school. Hear from other teachers who have done just that and be inspired to try something yourself.


The Conference Ceilidh!

End day two of the conference with some Scottish dancing!

Join Lewis Hou and his award-winning Science Ceilidh band for a night of traditional Scottish dances alongside a few science-themed versions written with researchers, schools and community groups from their interdisciplinary education programme across Scotland. All the steps will be explained, so no dance (or science!) experience or partners needed!

The ceilidh is being held at Greyfriars Kirk – an iconic 17th century church in the heart of Edinburgh old town, only 800m away from the conference centre and close to the infamous Flodden Wall.
Doors open at 7pm. Entry by ticket only.

Tickets cost £20 plus VAT (£24 in total) and include a one course street food style dinner of middle eastern filled flatbreads.
Meat, vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options will all be offered.
Drinks available from a pay bar at the venue.
