Amazing Animals at the Edinburgh International Book Festival

Edinburgh International Book Festival, Children's Tent 18th Aug 10.00am-11.00am Free

On Sunday 18 August, the Maths Week Scotland team will be at Edinburgh International Book Festival. Come and say hello, and make some origami animals with us.

We will be joining the National Museums Scotland learning team, who invite you to explore some amazing animal objects within their handling collection! Get hands on to find out how heavy an elephant tooth is or check out the razor-sharp teeth inside a shark jaw - a fun chance for families to learn all about the fascinating world of animals!

There will also be a pop-up sensory tent for those who appreciate a quieter experience.

Free, drop-in.
