Additional Information

The Science Masterclasses are completely free but have limited places available. Priority is given to students who can attend all four classes. There is no limit to the number of students who apply from one school; however, places for each class are limited. Once applications have been received we will correspond with students and parents at their home addresses. The RSE is Children's Scotland University Learning Destination, and you can collect two credits for attending each masterclass.
