Our 2016 Festival is now over. We embarked on a voyage of discovery from 26 March – 10 April, bringing a vibrant and varied programme of events to venues across Edinburgh to explore how science, technology, engineering and design have the potential to improve the world we live in and the way we live within it. Our 2017 Festival will take place from 1 – 16 April.
Each year you can explore the UK’s largest science festival with over 270 events for families and adults. Our vibrant and varied programmes include everything from fun family days out to talks and discussions from pioneering thinkers. Family festivalgoers can enjoy six floors of sensational science at City Art Centre, world class theatre at Summerhall and a host of hands-on activities and more at our partner venues across Edinburgh. Our exciting adult programme of discussions, workshops, performances, screenings, special events and exhibitions feature everything from science themed parties to experimental food events creating unforgettable festival experiences. Join us for our next Festival from 1 – 16 April 2017.
