Careers Showcase

This year's Careers Showcase theme is "DESTINATION SPACE!"

Dynamic Earth are once again hosting a free STEM careers event for you and your pupils:

  • When - Wednesday 5th February 2020
  • Time - 10:00 til 14:00
  • For - P6 to S3 pupils

Inspired by the 50th anniversary of the Apollo Moon landings, Dynamic Earth is looking to the future of space exploration and the role of the next generation in discovering more about our awe-inspiring universe. 

The space sector in Scotland is one of the fastest-growing space industries in the world, and is expected to create over 30,000 more jobs over the next decade. Scotland will be home to one of the UK's first space-ports and tens of thousands of people will be involved in designing. building and launching satellites, then interpreting the fascinating information that they transmit back to Earth. 

Our aim is to give your pupils an insight into some of the amazing (and potentially surprising!) careers accessible to them in this incredibly exciting field.

We will have a exciting cohort of role models on-hand to share their journeys within the space sector - young people can chat with, question, and ultimately be inspired by their work, experiences and research.  The Showcase is supported by a wide mix of organisations from industry, both big and small, academia and public services. They will offer up expertise and hands-on experiences to engage and enthuse the next generation of young scientists.

The Careers Showcase is a fantastic free event for schools, and you can complement your learning experience by adding a visit to the Dynamic Earth attraction tour and our exciting 360 degree Show Dome cinema - we will be showing our brand new Dome film "CapCom Go!"  which is all about the Apollo Moon landings and the extraordinary science which took mankind to the moon, and back again!

Places are limited and are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis (charges apply for the Tour & Dome activities) For more information and to enquire about booking, please email or call 0131 523 1273
