Meet the Marine Scientists

About Meet the Marine Scientists

Join marine scientists from Heriot-Watt University to get up-close and personal with some wee sea beasties from around our shores and discover how we can find out more about the animals that live thousands of metres below the ocean surface. You’ll learn how we can use the buried skeletons of marine plants and animals to understand how the ocean environment changes over time and find out how research is helping scientists to better protect our marine environment from damaging human activities.

Age 5+

These activities are available as a drop-in experience as part of your visit to Dynamic Earth between 10am and 4pm. These activities are included with admission to the Dynamic Earth exhibition and are free for Explorer Pass holders.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Meet the Marine Scientists are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
