A North-east science centre is to receive more than £200,000 in funding from the Scottish Government.
Aberdeen Science Centre is to be awarded just under £259,500, which is part of a £2.6 million funding package nationally, that will see three other centres in the country benefit as well.
Last year saw a record high of nearly 695,000 visitors to Glasgow Science Centre, Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh, Dundee Science Centre and Aberdeen Science Centre, including a 4.5% increase in the number of primary and secondary school pupils.
A further £153,000 will be shared by the four science centres for activities and events, with a range of community and other groups, making sure they reach out to disadvantaged audiences.
The funding pot includes money to subsidise school transport costs and increase engagement with under-represented groups.
