Leith Labs

Check out our website and ask your deepest science questions, meet at our monthly events and find out a new way of looking at science, art and tradition! Always hand-in hand with the Leith Community.

Join us once a month and enjoy our free hands-on science and art activities: informal discussions with local scientists and creatives, a hacked Lab Unit for your experiments, roaming Scientists Busking with science tricks and art performances… The perfect merge of Science, Arts and Tradition!


Let us wonder with you!

If you have a question about science you've always wondered about, visit Ask Your Question section in our new website, send us an email, check out our Twitter - @LeithLabs, post on our Facebook page or just come along to our events! We'll do our best to point you in the right direction, put you in touch with local scientists directly or theme a #LeithLabsExplores event to explore your ideas.

In addition, we have a beautiful yellow unit which serves as a Leith Community Science Postbox, including postcards for visitors to post their questions about science. We have received over 400 questions we are now working through and teaming Leithers with scientists to answer the questions themselves.
