Lab Rats: all at sea!

Today is the last day that the Lab Rats: All at Sea! will be at the Edinburgh Science Festival.

Lab Rats: All at Sea!ran from Monday 25th March until Friday 5th April, approximately 400 children aged 4-7 were engaged and enthralled by staff at National Museum of Scotland.

Mini-scientists were put through their paces on a journey around Scotland’s coastline; on route they stopped off at the Mud Lab. This was their chance to learn about  the amazingly varied creatures that can be found in the mudflats off Scotland and what mud scientists have to do to find them.
