With less than a week to go until the launch of the 2013 programme on 31 January, the Edinburgh International Science Festival is delighted to be celebrating its 25th year.

This landmark Festival offers the perfect opportunity to remember our past, enjoy our present and look forward to a dynamic future at the forefront of engaging the public with science and technology.

You’ll find amazing and inspiring future-focused events happening all over Edinburgh – from family workshops and interactive events, to exhibitions, discussions and big nights out for sci-curious adults.

Already announced for 2013 is Scotland’s first ever Mini Maker Faire at Summerhall on Sunday 7 April, showcasing the work of 50 diverse and inventive makers of everything from traditional crafts to cutting edge digital technologies. The Call for Makers is still out with applications closing on Friday 1 February. More details are available at

The Festival will also be returning to St Andrew Square, presenting a stunning large-scale photography exhibition entitled Patterns in Nature, exploring the beauty, symmetry and complexity of the visual forms created by the natural world. The exhibition runs from 31 January – 7 April and St Andrew Square is open from 8am-6pm.

Booking for the 2013 Science Festival opens on 31 January and tickets can be purchased online, by phone on 0844 557 2686 or in person at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe shop on the High Street.
