  • Event date: 23rd February 2019
  • Location: Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre, Leith, Edinburgh

Event details

Join students and staff for some magical activities at Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre, Leith (ground floor beside Debenhams).  All activities are free and there's no need to check-in. Just come to our tables!

Sorting hats, ectoplasm, flying brooms and cars… Certainly, the magic of Harry Potter defies science in many different moments. However, in Leith Labs we think that even we, muggles, can understand a bit of the science behind their spells and potions.

This weekend we will focus on fluids and slime, seeing why they behave as they do and why they are so interesting for Physics. You don’t need to receive any letter to attend, so come along!
