Science Festival Family Day at Heriot-Watt

Heriot-Watt University will be holding a Family Day on Saturday 14 April 2018 10.00am – 4.00pm, at Oriam Sport Centre as part of the Edinburgh International Science Festival.

Get hands-on with cutting edge research at Heriot-Watt. As part of Heriot-Watt’s Year of the Sea, they will transform Oriam, Scotland’s National Performance Centre for Sport, into an underwater world, creating a day out packed with workshops and interactive events.

Drive your own underwater robot, take a virtual reality tour as microbes cleaning up oil spills, explore how our scientists work with light and sound, and much more! Out-of-the-sea activities will include robot construction, froth, foam and bubbles and creating your own blueprint. As well as getting messy and creative, you can take part in a series of scientific challenges to unlock our underwater world, winning prizes as you go.

The event is a drop in. For more information visit their website here.
