Startup Science// //

There is a great opportunity for pupils in S1 and S2 to take part in Startup Science. Startup Science is intended to give young people the opportunity to broaden their knowledge and experience by taking part in hands-on practical activities led by a team of experts.  Each session is designed to be fun, so those involved will remember it forever! The format is a series of free Science and Technology Masterclasses at the University of Glasgow. The masterclasses will take place on Saturday mornings from 10am to 12.30 pm for four weeks in November, starting on 7th November. This is a fun way to experiment in Science with Aeroplane design, astronomy, bridge building and working as a Rocket Scientist for the day.

As part of our commitment to improving local air quality, East Renfrewshire Council now has powers to issue fixed penalty notices to drivers who don’t switch off their engines when stationary. Council officers will be carrying out patrols around local schools and speaking to drivers who let their vehicles idle unnecessarily.

 Air quality within East Renfrewshire is generally good and meets national standards, however we are always keen to make further improvements. Within East Renfrewshire, road traffic is the main source of air pollutants. Parents and others taking children to and from school can help to reduce children’s exposure to exhaust fumes by leaving the car at home, by parking further away from the school and by turning off their engines when stationary.
