Dunbar’s Science Festival

Dunbar's Science Festival
Description: Dunbar’s Science Festival is an annual festival held in Dunbar.

What Can I Do?

Dunbar Science Festival is looking for a variety of people to get involved with this year’s event. Available roles are:

  • Acts for science stage shows: Acts are needed to fill two 45-60 minute stage show slots on the morning of Friday 15th March. This is a schools event. Each show will have an audience of up to 500 pupils, aged either in the nursery-P3 range (3-7 year olds) or in the P4-S2 range (8-13 year olds).
  • Volunteers for weekend daytime: Volunteers are needed to help with the setting up and running of daytime (10am-5pm) events on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th March. This would be ideal for students who are keen to get more public engagement experience.
  • Speakers and performers for Cafe Scientifique: This is an opportunity to entertain an adult audience on the evening of Saturday 16th March. Presentations or acts needs to be science-related, very accessible, entertaining and pithy (20 minutes absolute maximum).
  • Panellists for Dunbar Conversations: This is a panel discussion taking place on the evening of Thursday 14th March in Dunbar Community Centre. The organisers still need panel members; they’re looking for scientists who can be encouraging about getting others (especially young people) in the East Lothian area to be working scientists.

Timescale: The festival took place Saturday 5th March and Sunday 6th March 2016
