Doors Open Day 2019

Saturday, September 28, 2019 - 10:00 to 16:00
Joseph Black Building

As part of the Edinburgh-wide Doors Open Day event we are opening the doors of the Joseph Black Building on Saturday 29th of September. Visitors can tour the building including our stunning new social space incorporating the School of Chemistry museum. Taste our special ice-cream and frozen yogurt at the front of the building, freshly made in front of your eyes with liquid nitrogen!

Family drop-in activities (suitable for all ages) will let visitors explore the chemistry that happens in our building, meet our chemists, and celebrate the International Year of the Periodic Table!

Several other buildings across Kings Buildings will also be open on the day, so after a visit in Chemistry have a look around Ashworth Laboratories, School of Biological Sciences, Grant Institute, School of GeoSciences, Sanderson Building, School of Engineering, Roger Land Building, School of Biological Sciences and the Peter Wilson Building, Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC).
