Edinburgh Science Festival Launches


Next Post

We have been waiting for today for a long time. - Not just because it’s pancake day but also because today sees the launch of the 28th Edinburgh International Science Festival programme. ‘Building Better Worlds’ looks set to be the most exciting festival yet and as venue partners – Dynamic Earth is delighted to be part the programme and we can’t wait for it all to begin at Easter.So what can you expect from Dynamic Earth? Well we are celebrating the festival by offering a huge range of hands on activities that are available for visitors young and old to try out. As we follow closely Tim Peake’s Space Mission we will give you the chance to find out how robots are used to help astronauts aboard the International Space Station. Do you think you have what it takes to become an astronaut? Well now is the time to find out as we invite you to take part in some gruelling challenges, you’ll discover the fascinating things that can happen to the human body when we leave planet Earth behind. We will also be joined by experts from Heriot Watt who will show you how lasers and a billion years of marine evolution has helped to accelerate our understanding of tiny things. We will be opening in the evening for special ‘Double Dome Nights’ where we will be showing 2 films a night including the never before seen ‘From Earth to the Universe’. Look out for the ‘Wild about Bus’ as it pays us a visit. Added to this on April 7th we will be hosting an evening with Sir Mark Walport and Professor Ian Stewart as they introduce us to the options we have for powering the UK in the future.  View what’s on at Dynamic Earth.

It was great to be up at the National Museum of Scotland this morning as we heard the incredible plans. Our top tips for things to look out for after you visit us are ‘Dino Day’ at Summerhall and Jungle Safari at the City Art Centre.
