As our Rip It Up exhibition draws to a close, our November Science Saturday will explore the science behind sound. How do animals communicate? How does music make you feel? Can you play music with a laser? Can you make a robot dance? Explore these activities and more in an afternoon of music-related fun with St Cecilia’s Hall, Marty the Robot and our learning team. Suitable for all ages.
In January we welcome the Science Museum’s blockbuster Robots exhibition to the National Museum of Scotland. From early mechanised human forms to today’s cutting-edge technology, this major exhibition reveals our 500-year quest to make machines human. Our Science Saturday in January will be all about robots, coding, and artificial intelligence and there will be plenty of opportunities to get hands-on with some modern robots of all shapes and sizes! We will be joined by teams from world-class robotics organisations from Edinburgh and across Scotland.
