HebCelt young ones – and adults – were entertained and educated in Stornoway yesterday (Wednesday, July 17th) by the National Museums Scotland ‘Rock the Lab’ team.

On tour in partnership with Edinburgh International Science Festival, the ‘Rock the Lab’ science road-show presented astounding experiments through their busking bike pop-up lab and fired the imagination to show the fun side of scientific research and innovation with experiments, demos and surprises inspired by the wondrous collections on display at the National Museum of Scotland.

As well as the Hebridean Celtic Festival, the ‘Rock the Lab’ tour also stopped off this week at the Tarbert Community Centre in Harris and Bernera Community Centre.
