Kilmarnock Engineering and Science Society (KESS) organises lectures, assistance and general activities for schools in Kilmarnock and the surrounding district. Since 2012 various events have been held in schools and communities around East Ayrshire. The Society members involved in the schools outreach programme are, as a matter of policy, enrolled in the STEM Ambassador programme.  They follow the protocols of this national programme which includes a requirement to be part of the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) scheme and its associated checks.

If you think we may be able to assist your school please contact us on
