What have an indoor woodland, Edinburgh's most engaging researchers and I got in common?
We are all part of European Researchers Night 2016.
This year I am delighted to announce that the Curiosity Forest will not only cater for families as it did last year but also provide an night for adults to see the forefront of current research.
The Curiosity Forest is part of three confirmed events for Explorathon - Scotland's addition to ERN. As well as research in the woodland there will be events in Ocean Terminal for Leith Labs and at WHALE in Wester Hailes.
On Friday 30th September between 5pm and 9pm audiences are invited to Edinburgh Methodist Chuch, Nicholson Square for a chance to explore and learn. Researchers will be providing the full programme of events that evening including short-snappy story-telling, games and hands-on activities all relating to their work.
As part of the preparations for this event I will be running training sessions for researchers to help them develop activities, stories and talks tailored to the Curiosity audience. I am thrilled to be working with such a diverse group of participants in a truly creative way and look forward to updating you all on our progress together.
If you are a researcher and would like to take part but havent registered a note of interest yet please do so here
