Largest Science Festival : THE world’s longest-running science festival will explore the wonder and diversity of life on this planet – and further afield – in its milestone 30th year.
The Edinburgh International Science Festival is making Life, the Universe and Everything Else its theme for its outing in 2018, the year in which the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s famous early sci-fi novel Frankenstein is being celebrated.
Overall, the festival’s newly-launched programme features almost 270 events for families and adults in more than 30 venues in the Scottish capital.
The events, at what organisers describe as Europe’s largest science festival, include discussions, workshops, performances, screenings and exhibitions.
Highlights include a large outdoor exhibition at The Mound, backed by EDF Energy, on low carbon technologies.
Families can take part in events at the City Art Centre, Summerhall and hands-on workshops at the National Museum of Scotland.
Meanwhile, a series of events focused on food returns, with, among other things, Bake Off finalist Andrew Smyth exploring baking in space.
