This event has now sold out, but tickets are still available for 9.30am

Come join us on an explosive journey through renewable fuels, solar meadows and electric cars at Edinburgh College’s Dalkeith Campus. 1. Renewables Lab

  • See genetically modified bacteria that  glow in the dark
  • Bacterial fuel cell (a fuel cell that generates electrical energy)
  • Ethanol Gun – this is so loud it THRILLS me every time!

2. Solar meadows tour – see around our field of solar panels. It is quite a sight to behold. (see this BBC article) 3. Electric cars – try out our toy hydrogen cars and take a trip in our real-life electric car (4 people at a time) This workshop will run three times at 9.30am, 12 noon and 2.30pm. Please take note of your session’s start time when booking your ticket. Wheelchair accessible for the lab work. Solar meadows are in a field (access is limited). The cars are normal cars so access depends on participant transferring to car.
