Explorathon 2016

Looking for something new to do? Release your creativity and unleash your science skills during a three day programme of events celebrating European Researchers' Night and Fun Palaces Scotland.

On Friday 30 September, explore the Curiosity Forest from 5–9pm, joining artists, scientists and researchers at an indoor woodland evening event for adults. Let Edinburgh's brightest minds stimulate your brains as they regale you with stories and challenge and engage you, bringing academic research to life before your eyes in the City of Edinburgh Methodist Church, Nicolson Square. Curiosity Forest family events will take place on Saturday 1 (10am–5pm) and Sunday 2 October (2–5pm).

Fancy hearing about local university research while shopping? Got a science question that you want answered? Visit Leith Labs in Ocean Terminal for a special two-day extravaganza of hands-on science demonstrations, art-science fusion workshops and research-inspired discussions over tea and biscuits. Suitable for all, find us at our hacked Lab Space on Ocean Terminal's ground floor and the Living Memory Association on Friday 30 September, noon–6pm and Saturday 1 October (10am–4pm).
