Logo-YESCSCDI’s Young Engineers & Science Clubs (YESC) programme is a leading source of inspiration, excitement and resources for Scotland’s young people. Since 1987, we have worked in partnership with our members to develop topical, hands-on and engaging STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) projects to bring science to life in the classroom.

Our flourishing network - engaging with over 30,000 primary and secondary school students across in excess of 1,500 schools - spans the length and breadth of Scotland across all 32 local authority areas, from Shetland to Dumfries, and is supported by industry through engagement with a wide range of SCDI Members.
