Leith Labs

Lewis Hou: 

Introducing the world's first long-term curated Scientist-in-Residence programme in a shopping centre,  Ocean Terminal in Leith, Scotland. 

Featuring free science and art activities, informal discussions over tea and biscuits at the Living Memory Association with local scientists, a hacked Lab Unit in the middle of the mall for hands-on experiments and roaming scientists busking with science tricks once a month.

In between our events, the unit serves as a Leith Community Science Postbox, including an exhibition, science news and postcards for shoppers to post their questions about science. If you have a science idea you've always wondered about, send us a message, tweet #LeithLabs, post on our facebook page or just come along in person and we'll do our best to point you in the right direction, put you in touch with local scientists directly or theme a Leith Lab exploring your ideas.
