Due to the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on our capacity to plan and deliver in-person events, the Midlothian Science Festival public programme is taking a break for 2021. If you’d like to read, watch, listen and do some science at home, you can still check out many of the online activities curated for our 2020 online programme via our news feed.
However we are delighted that for a second year running we have a fantastic online programme on offer for Midlothian schools. From Monday 11 to Friday 29 October 2021 over 5,000 learners in primary and secondary schools across Midlothian will be joining local scientists online for fun, educational STEM activities, coordinated by the University of Edinburgh’s Easter Bush Science Outreach Centre. Find out more on our Schools Programme page.
