Community Discovery Pass

What is it?

Every year Dynamic Earth invites charities and community groups from across Scotland to apply for our Community Discovery Pass. The Community Discovery Pass entitles these organisations to free access to Dynamic Earth for a year and was formerly known as the Golden Ticket scheme. We support children and adults from a variety of backgrounds and enable them to access our centre when they may not normally be able to, for lots of different reasons.

This is part of our wider Community Learning Programme, which aims to make Dynamic Earth a place for all, so that everyone can access the fun experiences and learning opportunities we offer.

In 2022, we are thrilled to have the following groups as Discovery Pass holders:


Who can apply for a Community Discovery Pass?

There are a limited number of Community Discovery Passes so there will be organisations who miss out. We know that each and every community would benefit from free and easy access to Dynamic Earth but are currently focusing on support for communities who:

  • Live in areas of Multiple Deprivation
  • Live with a Disability
  • Live in Rural areas
  • Are disengaged with science

Please note, this pass is not applicable for schools as we have a separate School Discovery Pass scheme for learning visits during the academic year.  

What happens next?

Discovery Passes are valid for the calendar year from January to December and applications usually open for the following year’s passes in November. Keep an eye on this page to see when applications for 2023 open!
