About Edinburgh Science Festival: Gannet Games
Sat 9th, Sun 10th & Sat 23rd, Sun 24th April
Join the team at the Scottish Seabird Centre as they follow in the wingbeats of Georgie, a brave young gannet born on Bass Rock, as she overcomes challenges in becoming a fully-grown gannet.
Take part in a number of fun, interactive beach games to sharpen your gannet survival skills such as nest building, endurance, and speed. You’ll be amazed by the fascinating life cycle of a gannet, their incredible adaptations, and busy social lives, and come away with a newfound appreciation for this special species.
Start and finish outside the Scottish Seabird Centre (patch of grass in front of the Learning Hub). Activities will then take place on a beach a short walk away.
Participants must be accompanied by an adult (one adult per household). Please bring walking boots or shoes with good grip, clothing appropriate for the weather outside, a drink, any medication you may need, a face covering, a mobile phone and sun protection (on good weather days).
