Festival Delegates

Delegate Programme

Edinburgh Science Festival is launching a brand-new delegate programme for science engagement professionals, teachers, youth workers, academics and creatives. 

Aimed at our science communication, festival and creative partners and peers, this specially curated programme of Festival events, guided tours, special discussion sessions, masterclasses and networking events will provide delegates with the opportunity to experience the excitement of a world-leading Science Festival, meet with like-minded peers, be inspired and explore opportunities for future collaboration.

Meet with Festival staff, speakers and experts to learn more about the ways in which – through hands-on science, exhibitions, theatre, comedy, song and art – we collectively create and deliver the first and one of the world’s largest Science Festivals.

Supported by:
