Physics Ceilidh

  • Our Dynamic Earth (map)

Are you ready to Strip the Electron? Or try the Planetary Festival Dance? Join the award-winning Science Ceilidh band along with researchers from the School of Physics at the University of Edinburgh. On Saturday evening, we’re going to get down and physical with a full-blown proper ceilidh for the big kids with a mix of traditional and physics-themed dances touching on space, electrons & everything in-between! No partner, science or dance experience required! 

On Sunday daytime, families will get hands-on with our DIY Science Orchestra workshops all about the science of music. Experimenting with a series of unlikely instruments from fiddles to pipes, including making your very own kazoos to take away, we’ll learn all about physics of sound before we make some music together as a DIY science orchestra! Finally, the end the busy day, there'll be a family-friendly science ceilidh to put your physics learning (and dance moves) in action!!
