About Space Lab

All Ages

Come on a space journey to Planet X with chemists from The University of Edinburgh to discover what materials and technologies are needed to build and power a chemistry lab on another planet. Get hands-on with analysis of this alien environment using real chemistry experiments. You'll have the chance to use electrochemical sensors and spectrometers to investigate soil, water and atmospheric samples, as well as looking into the microscope to observe living (alien?) cells.

Venue:
Learning Centre Level 2, National Museum of Scotland

Presented by The University of Edinburgh

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