Edinburgh Science Festival

Founded in 1989, Edinburgh Science is an educational charity that strives to inspire people of all ages and backgrounds to take an interest in science and discover the world around them. The one thing that Edinburgh Science is best known for is organising the Edinburgh Science Festival, the world's first public celebration of science and technology, which occurs on an annual basis and is currently running until Sunday 21st April.

The two-week festival offers attendees all sorts of incredible experiences via a diverse programme of innovative events all centred around a specific theme. This year, the theme of the festival is Frontiers, inspired by the 50th anniversary of the Moon landings as well as the spirit of adventure and enquiry that continues to push science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

There will be a focus on several specific areas over the course of the festival, including:

  • Healthcare Frontiers
  • Engineering Frontiers
  • Planetary Frontiers
  • Digital Frontiers
  • Environmental Frontiers

These focus areas provide a platform for the brightest minds in science, engineering and technology to share new and exciting ideas based on cutting-edge research.

A number of new venues and partners have been included in this year's edition of the science festival, with the aim of exploring the forefront of science and celebrating the inspiring people who are dedicated to furthering the frontiers of the world's collective knowledge!
