During the Easter holidays, the City Art Centre is packed full of Edinburgh Science Festival workshops, activities and adventures for children aged 3+.

Join an out-of-this-world mission in Mars Master Constructors, scrub-up and save lives in ER Surgery or create your own gooey, gloopy slime to test on the Splat-o-Metre in Splat-tastic. There's something to suit science explorers of all ages.

Your day pass will get you and your budding scientists into our science playground drop-in activities and workshops are included in the entry price.

Some workshops need to be booked in advance and you can choose three bookable workshops per child.

Full details can be found online and in the Edinburgh Science Festival brochure. The full program is available at
