‘I have taken away from Fuselab an even bigger love of science than I already had (…I didn’t know that was possible!)’
‘It really pushed me as an engineer and really made me work hard’
‘I loved every minute of it!’
Fuselab GO is an innovation and creativity boot camp run by Edinburgh International Science Festival that gives young people aged 15-18 an opportunity to build the skills, networks and confidence to help them thrive in a fast moving future.
Fuselab GO encourages participants to pioneer a new way of life by imagining the reality of human beings populating a new planet. You will be asked to think bigger than ever before on a completely blank canvas, developing out of this world solutions to real world problems through a series of workshops, skills, sessions, talks and games. Each event will be attending by a number of industry specialists whose role will be to provide support and guidance to all participants.
We are looking to recruit aspiring engineers, designers and entrepreneurial thinkers to help plan the future of this as yet uninhabited world; working together to seek out relevant skills amongst their colleagues then collaborating on the design, prototype and testing of ideas.
Fuselab GO will land in various locations throughout Scotland during June and July 2015 and we are looking for 40 enthusiastic pioneers to take part in each event. The boot camps are completely free of charge and lunch will be provided on each day. We are unable to offer assistance towards travel costs.
Applications are open now! For your chance to be part of this exciting project, simply read the terms and conditions contained within the attached flyer to ensure you’re eligible to apply and then complete the short application form available online at sciencefestival.co.uk/Fuselab.
If you have any queries about the project or application process, you can contact us on Fuselab@scifest.co.uk.
Thank you very much to Alastair from Dunoon Grammar who has shared a National 5 prelim. This can be found in the resources area.
As this is a prelim exam, please make sure to keep it secure. Do not allow pupils to take copies away as we do not want risk reducing its validity as evidence.
Thanks to Ross Gray for sharing the “Skill deposition feedback sheet” which has been saved to General Resources. Ross describes the sheet as follows:
“Pupil Feedback Sheet – can be used in S3/S4 at any level of chemistry (or science) for pupils to give feedback to each other on practical work. I have ten laminated at A3 size in my classroom and pupils use white board pens to write on. It can be useful when doing critical skills style challenges to ensure all pupils are contributing such as for group manager, resource manager, time manager etc.”
More resources added to “Higher Chemistry CfE” – Unit 1 write on notes.
Thanks to Graham Reid.

A wealth of really useful resources can be found on the RSC LearnChemistry site. They relate to both the real life applications and teaching of chemistry. There are presentations, worksheets, videos, audio…… the list goes on and on. At the time of writing, there were over 3700 different resources available.
The site is easy to navigate and has really useful filters to help you find the resources you are looking for.
A great site which is definitely worth a visit.
