Edinburgh International Science Festival
Founded in 1988, the Edinburgh Science Festival brings together a programme of educational and interactive activities for the wee ones, and events and talks for adults in multiple venues across town.
Regular visitors to the Edinburgh International Science Festival include Richard Dawkins, Dr Bunhead, and Professor Richard Wiseman, who usually brings psychology orientated events.
The City Art Centre became the hub in 2011 for kids activities with activities such as ER, Unwrapping the Mummy, Dr Clot's Blood-Curdling Adventure, Nina and the Neurons, Dig Up a Dinosaur, and Rampaging Chariots.
