Hayward Sanderson Trust Funds Generation Science Workshops on Climate Change for Galashiels Primary Schools.

The Hayward Sanderson Trust was delighted to provide funding support for the Generation Science workshops on Our Changing Climate, held on the 28th and 29th of February, in four primary schools in Galashiels. This initiative, delivered by Generation Science, one of the country’s leading science education outreach programmes, aimed to empower students through interactive learning experiences.

Generation Science has been a cornerstone in science education since 1991, reaching over a million pupils nationwide. Designed to foster independent thinking, the workshops provide students with tangible tools and materials to explore the marvels of science at their own pace.

The ‘Our Changing Climate’ workshop employed engaging and interactive games like Climate Bingo to convey crucial climate change messages. Students not only learned that managing climate change involves taking small, meaningful actions rather than drastic lifestyle changes but also demonstrated increased understanding and awareness of the climate issues.

Malcolm Lindsay, Trustee of the Hayward Sanderson Trust, expressed delight in supporting the initiative. He stated, “The Trust is always pleased to consider applications for funding for local school workshops that go beyond the normal resources of the school.”

The primary schools benefiting from this initiative include St. Margaret’s RC Primary School, Balmoral Primary School, Burgh Primary School, and St. Peter’s Primary School.

Generation Science and the Hayward Sanderson Trust extend their gratitude to all participants and supporters who contributed to making these workshops a success.

The Hayward Sanderson Trust welcomes applications from across the Scottish Borders, in particular Galashiels, and encourage people to get in touch about making an application for funding.
