Heriot-Watt University recognises the role that science and arts festivals play in making those subjects accessible to a wide audience and strengthening young people's learning

From the comedy of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, to the shores of Orkney for their International Science Festival, our academics share their enthusiasm for their research with those whom it affects. Some of the highlights of the past few years are showcased below; keep an eye on the Heriot-Watt events and news pages for updates on our activities.
