About Leith Labs Explores Your Health! - Explorathon 2019

One of the biggest science interactive events in Europe comes back to Leith!

Explorathon & Leith Labs partner up again to bring the European Researchers ́ Nights to Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre. An event free-of-charge for all our community.

Interesting talks and great hands-on drop-in activities from the best health researchers in Edinburgh will take place in Leith on Saturday, 28th September, from 11.30am to 4pm.

A great way of spending your time while getting to know the people behind the most important health discoveries of our city.

The European Researchers’ Nights (ERN) are public events dedicated to bringing researchers closer to the public throughout the EU. Explorathon is Scotland’s edition of ERN.

Explorathon 2019 will see a series of exciting one-off events taking place across the country from September 27 – 29. Events will take place in different locations in Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Fife, Tayside and Shetland.

Leith Labs is in charge of developing Explorathon 2019 ́s activities in Leith. For that, they have organised the event ‘Leith Labs Explores… Your Health’ with a focus on health research..

Several scientists from Edinburgh’s main research centres and universities will develop and deliver short hands-on free activities to introduce the public to most innovative health-related topics such as positive psychology, mental health or the effect of a lack of vitamin D and how to avoid it when living in a not-so-sunny place as Scotland.

There will also be free-ticketed talks at the Living Memory Association (THELMA; Ocean Terminal’s 1st floor) with tea and biscuits to share.

For booking tickets and a fully updated programme refer to Leith Labs’s website (https://www.leithlabs.org/explorathon-2019-programme/).
