Moray & Highlands Branch

The branch covers a wide geographical area and enjoys opportunities to travel to give talks to remote and rural schools and communities under its programme The Travelling Scholars.

A new initiative, The T-Exchange, aims to provide opportunities for everyone to explore the potential of new types of technology. A monthly workshop is based around simple skills such as soldering or software, in a self-help format. New equipment such as 3D printers are opening up manufacturing technology on a domestic scale in the same way that the PC and laptop have done for information. Combined with Arduino electronic kits and software tools such as Google SketchUp, there is a wealth of possibilities to be tried out, with support on hand, in addition to tea and coffee.

The branch has an online discussion forum, open to all, and in 2012 organised a successful debate on climate change with 100 attendees as part of the Orkney International Science Festival.
