The Edinburgh Branch is run by a diverse, dynamic and enthusiastic team and provides a broad programme of science based activities throughout the year.

We run a regular lecture series in collaboration with the Edinburgh University Science Magazine, as well as monthly SciScreen and events in British Science Week, at local festivals like the Fountainbridge Canal Festival and in collaboration with local companies like our Science of Brewing event.  We recently organised a Future Debate on robotoics, which can be seen here

We have previously been awarded first prize for the best BSA branch event during “Brain in May”, for John’s Mindfulness for Depression: Theory and Practice discussion. Jillian’s Science of Cup Cakes was also awarded second prize for best Community Science Engagement Event in Scotland.
