Teaching & Learning
Bring your class to our live lesson
On March 23rd, we’re running a national lesson where pupils will learn about digital skills, data skills, and the ethics of using technology to make decisions. To take part, your class can watch along on YouTube.
The interactive lesson explores how personal data is used to make decisions. You’ll see how computer programmers can (often accidentally) implement their own bias into the algorithms and apps they create. We’ll challenge pupils to make a fair and unbiased algorithm.
We will guide you and your class through the activity. It’s aimed at learners age 10+ interested in tech, coding, and being ethical digital citizens.
We bring unique, live experiences directly to schools across Scotland which aim to inspire pupils of all ages to engage with science, technology, engineering and maths. With fully equipped shows and workshops and expert science communicators, all experiences are linked to the Curriculum for Excellence (CfE).

This is in response to increasing instances of pupils presenting with high levels of emotional distress including suicidal thoughts and self-harm.
