Bring your Earth Explorers to Dynamic Earth this half-term!

We can’t believe it’s already the October half-term break, but we’ve got LOTS to keep the kids entertained. From exploring new environments, grilling our experts and getting stuck into our interactive activities, there’s something to suit all ages. Where do we even start!

Well, let’s kick off with the official launch of the ‘51 Best Places to See Scotland’s Geology’ project on 14th October. A free event hosted in partnership with the Scottish Geodiversity Forum and a number of other partners, the project is a fantastic way for the whole family to find out more about Scotland’s fascinating geological heritage and our beautiful landscapes.

Next up, we have our ‘Earth Explored’ days which will be running from 15-22 October. As always, we’ll have a range of drop-in interactive activities and if you feel like it, you can make your own tornado or pilot a drone in our brilliant virtual reality simulators! We’ll also have an augmented-reality sand box to show how climate change has affected our environments and landscapes.

On 16th October, we’re very excited to be welcoming environmental scientists from the research ship, the RRS James Cook. They’ll be on hand to talk about their latest mission, BRITICE-CHRONO, and how they gather data to monitor how our planet and sea levels are responding to climate change. The vessel’s photographer and filmmaker, Alex Ingle, will also be bringing along his wonderful exhibition of photographs and film footage to let you see what life is really like on board the RRS James Cook!

And last but certainly not least, we’re delighted to have some special guests from the Scottish Mineral and Lapidary Club visiting us from 19-22 October. You’ll have the chance to be a real fossil detective and get up close and personal with an amazing collection of Scottish fossils and geodes, minerals and microscopes.

Daytime activities are free with admission to Dynamic Earth, for more information visit our what's on page
