2019 will be our 8th festival and it will be taking place between Sat 5 - Sat 19 October.
Alongside stand alone events the festival also organises a host of well attended science gala days across the two weeks too, which are populated by table top and drop in activities.
We have updated our aims for 2019, with a emphasis on:
1. co-creating events with local communities and groups, 2. increasing the number of events on offer in the more deprived areas of Midlothian 3. increasing the number of events for older children and young adults.
We're looking for events that:
1. Inspire, engage and excite...2. Will appeal and be accessible to a diverse range of audiences 3. Connect the audience / participants with scientific research 3. Showcase STEM happening in Midlothian
We are happy for you to offer something tried and tested but we would love for you to try out something new, experimental and pioneering. We have a few ideas of our own too and the Festival team will be making a start on researching and planning these events, and may also be in touch directly to discuss.
