Edinburgh International Science Festival is a high profile and dynamic educational charity. Each year it delivers one of Europe’s largest Science Festivals; a primary school education programme which tours across Scotland and a variety of international projects including its role as Major Programme Partner for the Abu Dhabi Science Festival.
What makes it special?
The two-week event places emphasis on giving audiences amazing experiences through a programme of innovative and inspiring events.
Recent events included an interactive exhibit at the National Museum of Scotland which gave visitors the chance to immerse themselves in accessible technologies, an exciting range of science shows and workshops for children and families, and a series of entertaining evening events for adults.
The Festival's lunchtime science sessions provided some serious food for thought, including scientists, politicians, academics and the public discussing and debate what Scotland’s future might hold.
