Edinburgh Science Festival


Be wowed by the Edinburgh Science Festival - one of Europe's largest Science Festivals. This festival delivers a unique mix of innovative and inspiring discussions, performances, exhibitions and events. It's an experience you'll never forget.

The Edinburgh Science Festival is a place of fun learning for all ages and even has a programme for primary school education that tours around Scotland.

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 Science Festival normally runs for two weeks during the Easter period. The programme is packed full with lots of fun events and workshops that aim to delight and inspire. 

  • With a family-friendly orientated programme that is usually released in February, visitors can get stuck into 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 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.
