Glasgow Science Centre
Glasgow Science Centre's mission is to promote science and technology. They use thought-provoking, fun and exciting experiences that inspire all to explore and understand the world around them.
Glasgow Science Centre provides curriculum aligned learning experiences to more than 100,000 Scottish school children every year, ranging from first steps in science for nursery school children to advanced higher level experiments that are difficult for schools to deliver.
BodyWorks on Tour is a successful educational outreach programme that focuses on health and well-being. With the support of GSK, the Glasgow Science Centre has taken science into communities and schools from Stranraer to Stromness, literally the length and breadth of Scotland. In doing so, the initiative has reached around 550,000 people, or 1 in 10 of Scotland's population.
Dispersed, remote or isolated communities may not easily come to visit the Science Centre. 'BodyWorks on Tour' goes on the road to ensure that these groups benefit from an exciting and educational experience.
The 'On Tour' experience has been developed into two health and well-being programmes - BodyVision and FitLab. BodyVision looks at issues like how lifestyle choices can make a difference to your body and FitLab uncovers the effects of exercise on your body and how to reach your personal best.
