Sing a Song of Science
Help us sing some songs of science, find a special crab that’s deep in the mud, sweep the stars (don’t forget to have a brush with you), tell off a contrary Mary, dig with the Trowelblazers, engineer some music, and find out what Beatrix Potter and her postman have to do with science.
Phew! Biology, Astronomy, Maths, Geology and Engineering were never more fun.
You can sing and join in the actions and expect to be astonished by the amazing discoveries made by some the UK’s most important women scientists.

Lyth signalled the end of the first part of our #EchoeScot tour – the final date of 2018. We learnt a great deal on the tour which started in St Abbs in the far South East, visiting Stirling, Killin & Kenmore, Isle of Coll and Strathpeffer on our way to this Northern outpost of artistic excellence, bursting with energy and life in a most unexpected, isolated position.
Strathpeffer provided a wonderful stop over and fun diversion during our Echoes – Minerva Scientifica Tour of Scotland which began in June 2018 at Eyemouth and St Abbs and finished in Perth in November 2019..
