Young Engineers and Science Clubs Scotland

To ensure an innovative and successful future, Scotland must invest in the next generation of data scientists, engineers and computer technicians now. Science, Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) skills are currently in high demand, and this will only increase.

Our 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.

YESC interdisciplinary projects – accompanied by resource kits and teacher CPD courses – enable teachers to tackle challenging STEM concepts through engaging activities. Supporting pupils to develop valuable skills and knowledge while encouraging uptake in STEM subjects and careers.

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