Edinburgh Science Festival, scheduled for 4–19 April 2020, was cancelled due to the global spread of COVID-19. Although the physical event won’t go ahead as planned, we are incredibly excited to be part of their digital alternative: Elements of #EdSciFest.

Sticking with the original theme of ‘Elementary’, their new digital festival explores science’s role in addressing the biggest global environmental challenges through five strands – Air, Earth, Fire, Water and Aether, representing the digital world. These strands include online entertainment, curated articles, downloadable resources and much more covering all the Science Festival favourites throughout April.

Aether Go Digital looks at the power we hold at our fingertips, the potential solutions that technology holds to our problems and the issues that might arise from it. As part of this strand, we are sharing a range of digital learning resources with fun tasks challenging audiences to Defend the Hospital and Steal a Pizza.
