Every year, we give out a Dynamic Earth Golden Ticket to 10 lucky schools across Scotland – this helps us to support pupils who perhaps would not ordinarily get the chance to experience a science centre or the learning opportunities we can offer. The schools who are awarded with a Golden Ticket are entitled to the following exciting benefits, which they can use throughout the academic year –
- Free entry and access to ALL of Dynamic Earth’s learning activities – the amazing interactive attraction tour and all our 360’ ShowDome films, plus our curriculum-linked educational workshops and outdoor learning experiences.
- Assistance with travel costs under our Transport Subsidy scheme.
- 20% discount in the Food Chain Café for accompanying teachers and adults.
- 15% discount in the Natural Selection Gift Shop for accompanying teachers and adults.
- 10% discount on our fabulous Christmas Party nights for school staff.
- Notification of special events and Dynamic Earth promotions via our e-newsletters

Suzanne, Rachel and Brendan from our Learning & Group Bookings team have been out and about presenting the lucky schools with their Golden Tickets. It’s been fantastic to put faces to names, meet with some of the staff and children who will be coming to visit, and to introduce ourselves to everyone involved in arranging school trips. We are really looking forward to seeing all the different classes and working with these schools over the coming academic year, to ensure they get the most out of their Golden Tickets. Applications are now closed, but keep an eye on our website and social media pages to find out how your school can apply for the next academic year!
