CRH creates workshop activity for EISF 2022

Vaccine-building workshops, a guide to the mathematics of pizza, and hands-on activities exploring good and bad bacteria are among events involving University experts at the Edinburgh Science Festival.

Edinburgh International Science Festival 2022

The packed EISF programme focused on the theme of how seismic shifts in science and ideas have led to industrial, climate and data revolutions.

Running from 9 to 24 April 2022, this year’s event – the world’s first and Europe’s biggest science festival – features 120 events, tours and exhibitions, as well as workshops for children, young people and adults.

Other highlights include the return of University scientists to the National Museum of Scotland for the first time since 2019 where they will deliver a programme of bookable and drop-in events, talks and workshops for all ages.

MRC CRH is proud to present a new workshop for 2022:

Ready Steady Grow – the Lifecycle of a Human Body.

Two workshops will run on Sunday 10 April, 2022 (11 am and 2 pm).  


Join scientists from the MRC Centre for Reproductive Health to learn about the challenges of creating a new life from successful fertilisation of an egg, to the growth and development of an embryo, and ultimately the creation of a healthy human. Examine real mouse embryos to find out how they develop. Use microscopes to discover how cells grow and change to become a healthy body. And uncover what the different cells in your body do and what happens when cell growth goes wrong.
