爱丁堡国际科技节

2019年4月6日至21日

从巨型泡泡到打破世界记录的荧光棒,从爬入巨型鼻子了解肺和呼吸道,到解开高尔夫挥杆的奥妙,这些充满趣味的活动里都包含着严肃的科学话题。爱丁堡国际科技节举办25年来,一直将娱乐、知识和奇妙探险相结合,让人们对科学产生兴趣。

In 2018, the festival’s 30th year, the theme was ‘Life, the Universe and Everything Else You Can Think Of’ and it explored what it means to be alive in the 21st century.

Over the space of two weeks more than 250 events took place at venues across the city, including exhibitions, shows, discussions, workshops and hands-on activities for both adults and children. At the City Art Centre, five floors of hands-on science were available for families to explore, including mummifying apples, digging for dinosaur bones and building circuits.

The theme for the 2019 festival will be ‘Frontiers’, with an extensive programme of events available nearer the time.

With science-based comedy, theatre performances and food and drink events, as well as talks and discussions on a range of topics, the festival demonstrates just how inspiring and entertaining science can be.

History

The Edinburgh International Science Festival was the first event of its kind in the world and is still Europe’s biggest. Founded in 1989 as an education charity to encourage people to discover the wonders of the world, this two week-long festival was developed to celebrate science and technology and communicate the excitement and benefit both can bring.

Throughout the year, the festival also runs a touring education programme in Scotland, including interactive science shows for schools, as well as a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) focused career fair.
