We were delighted to welcome the University of Edinburgh’s SCI-FUN Roadshow at our weekend Festival. They brought over 50 science activities which had us all intrigued and participating.

Stuart Dunbar head of the Roadshow discussed their models with the youngsters from our Science Clubs who had participated in the Mars Project, and their models were on display throughout the weekend.
