Young Engineers and Science Clubs Scotland

Scotland’s leading source of inspiration, excitement and resources for young scientists and engineers.

Young Engineers and Science Clubs Scotland (YESC) is a Scotland wide primary and secondary school education programme run by the Scottish Council for Development and Industry and supported by many of public or private sector members.

Our projects are designed to grow interest and spark enthusiasm in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths subjects by encouraging young people to have a go at fun, hands-on activities and experiments. Pupils work alongside their teachers, real engineers and scientists putting their problem-solving skills to the test on themed investigations that will feed their curiosity and fire their imagination.

Whether you’re a young person eager to explore an exciting career in STEM, a teacher looking for STEM resources with a punch, or a company who wants to form positive links with education, this site will help you find out more about us and what we can do for you.
