RSC Scotland regional meeting

Attended the RSC Scotland regional meeting yesterday at the glamorous Royal Society of Edinburgh on George Street, a great location! It was good to meet some old friends who haven’t seen since I was last in Edinburgh (working at the University of Edinburgh) and also to hear all about the good work being done by the RSC. Some important questions were raised such as:
How will the Curriculum for Excellence be implemented by different schools? Will there be a choice of taking three science subjects or will certain schools be limited to two or even only one? A survey is currently being carried out by the RSC to determine this so stay tuned!
How will the vote on Scottish Independence affect science both in industry and academia? Here several reports were mentioned so I will need to trach these down. Again, stay tuned!
