Would you and your pupils like to find out more about engineering, bridges and the construction of the Queensferry Crossing? Looking for an interactive, fun STEM visit?
Our engineer-led visits take place in our stunning Contact and Education Centre Exhibition Area in South Queensferry. The Centre provides an excellent learning environment with detailed bridge models, audio-visual resources, interactive learning challenges and spectacular panoramic views of the Forth Bridges and Forth Estuary.
Pupils work collaboratively in teams, developing problem-solving, communication, team-working and organisational skills whilst completing their STEM challenges.
Booking is required and visits start at 09:30 or 10:00, 12:30 or 13:00 for groups of 20 to 80 pupils.
Single visits - for groups of 20 to 40 pupils last approximately 2 hours 30 minutes within the Centre and the visit can be enhanced by adding a Forth Road Bridge field trip. The field trip is self-led by your own teachers with materials provided by the Centre to enhance the experience and extend learning if required.

Double visits - for groups of more than 40 pupils last approximately 4 hours 30 minutes and involve both the Forth Road Bridge field trip (self-led by your own teachers) and the STEM – Engineering Workshop within the Centre.
