We invited the public to come along to the Easter Bush campus and visit the Dick Vet and the Roslin Institute for an afternoon of enjoyable and informative events. As well as our hands on activities, we had tours of the buildings and visitors could see where real scientists work and the vets of tomorrow train.

Other events later in October

We are also taking part in a number of other events for Midlothian Science festival later in October.

Science in the Saddle

On the 14th October go for a bike ride with us.

Join the Midlothian Ranger Service and scientists from The Roslin Institute for a 12-mile guided cycle ride around the Midlothian countryside, starting and ending at The Roslin Institute.

En route you’ll find out more about the area’s local history and how Roslin scientists are using their cutting-edge research to improve the health and welfare of farm animals in the UK and across the world.
