Young Engineers and Science Clubs Scotland

SCDI’s Young Engineers and Science Clubs Scotland (YESC) programme supports learners aged 3-18 and their teachers with a range of innovative STEM projects, developed with our industry partners. Our interdisciplinary projects – accompanied by resource kits and teacher CPD courses – support teachers to tackle challenging STEM concepts through engaging activities; while supporting pupils to develop valuable skills and knowledge; to encourage uptake in STEM subjects and careers.

Our annual STEM challenge gives Clubs a practical challenge to explore a topical theme and our regional and national Celebration of STEM events brings teams together from across Scotland to showcase their work to industry experts and take part in a range of challenges to meet those working in the STEM sector to learn about the exciting career opportunities available.
