For secondary school students aged 11–14, Edinburgh Science introduces Careers Hive – an immersive event designed to revolutionise how young minds envision their futures.

This dynamic initiative sheds light on the myriad opportunities awaiting those who delve into STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering, and maths). Beyond the conventional focus, Careers Hive highlights the importance of cross-disciplinary skills and subjects that enrich STEM careers. Providing the next generation with a unique perspective assists them in exploring diverse and exciting pathways in STEM education.

Careers Hive returns to the National Museum of Scotland from Monday 28 October–Saturday 2 November. Throughout the week 3,000 students will be guided through three-hour sessions featuring an interactive exhibition, hands-on workshops and inspirational talks.
