This website has been created by the Association for Science and Discovery Centres (ASDC) with funding from the Scottish Government.
As the major UK network for engaging families and the public with science out of school, ASDC created this climate hub to bring together resources, activities, events and carbon cutting initiatives to share knowledge and expertise to help protect our climate.
About the Association for Science and Discovery Centres
The Association for Science and Discovery Centres (ASDC) is a national charity that brings together the UK’s major science engagement organisations to play a strategic role in the nation’s engagement with science. Within our network are over 60 of the nation’s largest publicly accessible science centres, discovery centres, science museums and scientific bodies. Every year science centres and museums work to encourage more diverse participation in science, engaging with over 25 million people of all ages, genders, backgrounds and abilities.
The ASDC team, together with science advisors from the related field, create a programme of STEM projects that deliver funder’s key messages directly to the next generation of scientists, engineers, mathematicians, technicians, researchers, inventors, and innovative thinkers through the UK’s network of science and discovery centres and museums. The co-created STEM programmes are run with grants, often scoped to bring in new working practises, for example finding innovative ways to engage audiences, building resilience or incorporating best practise in working with communities.
