Nearly Time to Pay a Visit to Science Fest

SARAH MacGillivray holds aloft a model of a time machine ahead of the launch of a science festival at Our Dynamic Earth.

The superhero-themed summer programme will include entertaining shows, exciting giveaways and interactive family activities.

Running for four weeks over the school holidays, the special event will include two shows staged in association with the Edinburgh International Science Festival and Our Dynamic Earth's famous interactive dinosaur-themed activities.

The popular Holyrood Road visitor attraction also plays host to its very own time machine, which takes people on a journey stretching back 15 billion years and takes in the Big Bang and the advent of the dinosaurs.
