Special Projects

In addition to delivering Edinburgh’s annual Science Festival and a variety of education programmes in Scotland, we regularly take on additional special projects across the UK and internationally.

When working on these projects, we bring extensive expertise in creating and delivering interactive and entertaining educational experiences and provide content that is engaging and inspirational. We can also support partners with programme curation and event logistics and production, as well as providing Science Communication and event specific training for local staff.

Further information on some of the projects we have worked on is listed below – click on the titles on the left to find out more about each project.

Smartphone Microscopes, UK and International

Our Smartphone Microscope kits were originally developed as part of the activities involved in our Making It Exhibition for the Edinuburgh Science Festival 2014. These easy-to-assemble cardboard kits allow participants to turn their smartphone into a working microscope. We have subsequently delivered activities using the kits at a range of events, including our own Science Festival in Edinburgh and the Abu Dhabi Science Festival. We have also supplied the kits to a number of external organisations, including The Royal Society, as a tool to engage visitors at their own events.
