Edinburgh Science Festival

Delivering engaging and family-friendly chemistry activities for the Edinburgh Science Festival.

The School of Chemistry has a long history of delivering engaging and family-friendly science activities at the Edinburgh Science Festival. Our involvement is always a highlight for our community, with students and staff alike taking part in our programme of events each year.

We run an “Images of Chemistry” competition for our PhD students to submit images of their research that match the theme of the Edinburgh Science Festival each year. Visitors to our events as part of the Science Festival get to vote on their favourite image and the winner has their image displayed in the Joseph Black Building!
