In addition to our regular programme of events at the Centre, throughout the year there will be a range of special marine-themed events, held both at the Centre and at other venues around the country. Events will be shown here as they are confirmed. From science festivals to ‘Meet the Scientist’ evenings, more events will be added soon – so keep an eye out for updates!
Orkney International Science Festival - 6-12 Sept 2018
The Orkney International Science Festival has been running since 1991 and is directed by Dr Howie Firth, who directed the very first Edinburgh International Science Festival. Held every September, the OISF offers talks, lectures, demonstrations, experiments and scientific speakers from around the world.
This year the Scottish Seabird Centre will be travelling North to take part in the festival for the very first time! We will be offering marine-themed hands-on activities at the 'Family Fun Day' on Saturday 8 September as well as participating in the schools programme.
