Edinburgh Science Festival

to

For over 30 years the Edinburgh International Science Festival has served up fun and facts in a bid to get everyone interested in science. The Edinburgh Science Festival is the UK’s largest Science Festival with almost 270 events for families and adults over the course of two weeks. Families can look forward to a jam-packed programme of fun and educational events and activities.. For adults, the programme will feature discussions, debates, workshops, tastings and nights out, all with a scientific twist. Edinburgh Science Festival will return from Saturday 9 – Sunday 24 April 2022 with the theme of Revolutions. Focusing on the power of circles and revolutionary approaches to everything from personal to planetary health – and with an unashamed emphasis on the urgency of tackling the climate crisis – the 2022 Festival will explore lifeforms, lifecycles and revolutionary science, technology, ideas and solutions to global challenges. With a heartfelt call for a truly radical shift in the attitudes and behaviours of individuals, organisations and nations to combat the climate crisis and protect the delicately interconnected lifecycles and biodiversity of our planet and a special plea for the embracing of circular economies to help ensure a successful and sustainable future, EdSciFest 2022 aims to show how going round in circles can sometimes be a GOOD thing!

What makes it special?

  • The Edinburgh Science Festival nurtures young minds by starting a dialogue to help children understand and tackle big issues like climate change. The programme is packed full with lots of fun events and workshops that aim to delight and inspire. 

  • With a family-friendly orientated programme, visitors can get actively involved in learning about all things science. Discover the future of accessible technologies, spacecraft as well as the science of evolution, and the workings of the human body.

  • There’s normally plenty for adults to do too, with evening events that will give your regular night out a scientific twist. No matter your age, get stuck into all the interactive workshops, experiences and debates that the Edinburgh Science Festival has to offer.
