Thousands of people took the opportunity to take part in this year’s Midlothian Science Festival.
More than 1700 school children and more than 4000 members of the public were involved in science activities during the two-week festival.
Now in its second year, the festival is a collaboration involving Edinburgh University, Edinburgh Science Triangle, Midlothian Council, Roslin Institute and EAE Distribution.
Highlights this year included hands-on workshops, walks, exhibitions, talks and seminars for all ages and on a wide range of topics.
The next festival is scheduled to take place in October 2014.
