Inspired by the ancient classifications of earth, air, fire and water, Edinburgh Science Festival returns 4–19 April to explore science, technology, engineering, art and maths in all of its Elementary glory.

In 2020, Edinburgh Science Festival focus firmly on the environment! In a year that sees the 50th anniversary of Earth Day – generally regarded as the birthdate of the modern environmental movement – #EdSciFest are using the ancient classifications of earth, air, fire and water, as well as an added fifth element ‘aether’, as a way of exploring creative thinking, science, technology, engineering and maths, and the roles they play in addressing some of the biggest challenges that face us as individuals, societies and as a planet.

Families can enjoy a range of exciting, engaging and educational events and activities, including a five-floor science playground at City Art Centre, with hands-on workshops and shows for all ages. For adults, our programme of events for adults includes discussions, debates, workshops, tastings and nights out, all with a scientific twist.

The Edinburgh Science Festival is an annual science festival taking place across the Easter school holidays in Edinburgh. Each year it delivers the UK’s largest Science Festival with almost 270 events for families and adults over the course of two weeks. Its programmes include family days out, hands-on activities, talks and discussions.

Family festival goers enjoy five floors of science at City Art Centre, talks with scientists at the Pleasance and hands-on activities and more at the National Museum of Scotland and other partner venues across Edinburgh, including Dynamic Earth, the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, Edinburgh Zoo and Summerhall.
