What's On Calendar

April 12th - Operation Earth
April 12th - Operation Earth Daily from Thursday, 12 April 2018 until Thursday, 12 April 2018 10:00 AM

As part of the 2018 Edinburgh International Science Festival, join us at Dynamic Earth to take part in the brand new interactive programme aimed at families ‘Operation Earth.’ Solve the puzzles of our planet with this amazing family experience as it gives you an insight into how scientists are working to solve some of the biggest environmental challenges on Earth.

Take part in our new family show, running throughout the day! Earthy is feeling a little under the weather and is going to the doctors for a check-up. Join us together with the help of expert scientists, as we investigate what is bothering Earthy. Become a trainee environmental scientist and help us investigate Earthy’s land, air and oceans, and see if together we can identify and find solutions to Earthy’s problems.

As well as our family show, we’ll have lots of other bespoke hands-on activities to take part in throughout the day! Intrepid explorers can investigate the microscopic world, take part in food chain Jenga, pilot a drone using simulator software, sample wildlife in our indoor meadow and much more

These activities are available as a drop-in  experience as part of your visit to Dynamic Earth between 10am and 4pm. These activities are included with admission to the Dynamic Earth exhibition and are free for Explorer Pass holders.
