What's On Calendar


Meet Marine Scientists: Humans and the Deep-Sea
Meet Marine Scientists: Humans and the Deep-Sea Daily from Saturday, 25 September 2021 until Sunday, 26 September 2021 10:00 AM

Believe it or not what happens in the deep-sea can massively affect us humans and the future of the planet!

In this free science showcase, come and meet scientists from Heriot-Watt University and the National Museum of Scotland to discover the world of deep-sea research. Explore these incredible habitats: see some real life deep-sea animals up close, experience diving to the deep with footage from deep diving vehicles, see demos of equipment that can withstand diving to over 4000m depth and even design your own cup to crush at depth!

Drop-in to this free event any time between 10am and 4pm, no booking required. Tickets to the Dynamic Earth exhibition and planetarium are available separately
