Edinburgh Science Festival: Revolution

The arrival of April in Edinburgh means daffodils, rain showers and the return of Edinburgh Science Festival! This years theme is Revolution and explores the revolution in science and ideas including the science, industrial, climate and data revolution. We've hunted out some of our mathsy highlights from the programme

The Datasphere exhibition at National Museums Scotland explores how data is collected analysed and used to understand the world around us. Adults can enjoy the exhibits with a drink and a DJ at Data After Dark on Thursday 21 April - a chance to be a big kid yourself!
