Get hands-on with cutting edge research at Heriot-Watt. As part of Heriot-Watt's Year of the Sea, we will transform Oriam, Scotland's National Performance Centre for Sport, into an underwater world, creating a day out packed with workshops and interactive events.

Take a virtual reality tour as microbes cleaning up oil spills, explore how our scientists work with light and sound, and much more! Out-of-the-sea activities will include robot construction, froth, foam and bubbles and creating your own blueprint. As well as getting messy and creative, you can take part in a series of scientific challenges to unlock our underwater world, winning prizes as you go.
