Curiosity Club is our collaborative youth work project with People Know How supporting young people in North Edinburgh to develop their science capital - building their curiosity about the world around them, confidence and relationships with families and role-models.
From April to June 2018, we piloted three clubs in different formats - an 8 week after school club in Craigentinny Primary and youth club at Craigentinny community centre and an intensive science week at Leith Academy for students who didn’t go on a school trip. This was funded by the BBC Children In Need and Wellcome Trust Curiosity Fund.
You can read our evaluation here and we will be sharing a practitioner-level guide with learnings and ideas for other people wanting to integrate science engagement with youth clubs!
Thank you to all the young people, parents, collaborators and funders!
