Get Involved

ScotSci: A Scottish Science Communication Organisation.

Join us in our quest as we share research conducted in and around Edinburgh and learn about science through our events, posts and curated content.

We aim to make science captivating and accessible to all, and keep most of our events free.

We hope you enjoy exploring our page! Why not start your visit by checking out our past and future events and reading some of our content?


ScotSci look forward to seeing you at one our solo or collaborative events soon!

Remember: The curious mind drives innovation...


ScotSci aims to bring science to society. Through our events, we hope to provide an exciting and engaging programme that enables people to develop a critical understanding of science and its implications for our lives and for society as a whole. Our activities are organised by a local committee of dynamic and enthusiastic volunteers.


Initially, some of our committee members were part of the Edinburgh British Science Association local branch. Since the Branch was launched in 2003, we delivered a diverse range of events, often in cooperation with other like-minded organisations and groups. We transitioned to an independent organisation, ScotSci in early 2019.


We run a monthly Sci-Screens as well as hosting special events throughout the year. We participate in local community events such as the Fountainbridge Canal Festival and the Midlothian Science Festival. We organise public debates with Edinburgh partners on science and technology based issues. Other events reflect the interests of current volunteers. So please check our website regularly for forthcoming events, send us any suggestions you have for events you would like to see, and contact us if you would like to become a volunteer.

Science for the public 

Science is for everyone. We care about making science accessible to all and aim to bridge scientific research and everyday life. We have regular events aimed at adults, such as our monthly SciScreens.

Science for young people

We want young people to be as excited about science and research as we are. We bring explanations of scientific phenomena and ideas to inspire younger people at local events such as the Edinburgh Canal Festival.

Science for scientists

Love wolves but not a wolf scientist? Interested in neuroscience but spend your working week in the field catching butterflies? We bring top level talks and events on fields away from your money making science!
