Imagine that a tiny house becomes your classroom. How would you learn differently if your lecture was relocated into a mobile shepherd's hut? Discover the concrete utopia of a civic educational sanctuary. In the academic world of busy 'think tanks', take a break around the wood burner of this decelerated 'dream tank'! Final of three Festival Welcome Hut days: Experiential seminar. We invite you to an experience of the Welcome Hut in the Moray House Quad where the tiny house is permanently based.

The moment you leave your home, you enter into a dialogue with the urban fabric. Have you ever asked yourself, how much your moods are influenced by the city?

In this session, we want to change our relationship with the city, in a way that it turns into the narrative of happiness in our everyday lives.

Does that sound good to you?! Then come along for deep discussions, interactive debate and hands-on activities! Don’t forget to tell your friends and share this page!

Synthetic Biology is a branch of biology which takes biotechnology and applies engineering principles and social sciences to provide ethical, forward thinking solutions to problems.

One of the major areas is in biosensor development: cells have the ability to detect minute amounts of elements (such as arsenic) in the environment, and these can be modified to produce a detectable output like colour or light in their presence.

What does the delicate wing of a bee look like up close? Or the structure of a fungus? Join biologists to use different types of microscope to look closer at samples from biological research and nature. Then, express your scientific observations in a different way: create a collage in a giant petri-dish or a marbled art-work of your favourite sample or close up detail.

At this event, you'll have the opportunity to explore a live-coding environment called Supercollider. This language, though quite technical, enables performers to write software in real-time and to share what they're creating with audiences as it happens. You can find out more about Joanne's work here: https://joannnne.github.io/, or you may prefer to attend her concert as part of the Algobabez at ECA's West Court the evening after her workshop where she will work closely with her band partner Shelly Knots. That concert starts at 8pm.

Interested in blogging but not sure where to start?  This event will get you up and running!

You’ll spend the afternoon setting up your own blog, customising it, maintaining it and learning about how to blog.  At the end of the session, you’ll go away with your own blog which you can keep for a year, and we'll give you some suggestions about what to do after the end of that year.

After the session, we'll leave you to further develop your blog and we'll give a £20 book voucher out the week after as a prize for the best blog created.

Despite welcome changes in the way we think about women’s health and wellbeing, nevertheless, in a recent STUC survey, 32% of respondents said that menopause was treated negatively in their workplace and 63% reported that it was treated as a joke. This can’t be good for women experiencing menopause, for girls and young women looking ahead to menopause, or for supportive colleagues and family members of all ages and genders. Inspired by (but not a part of) the Menopause Café movement the Invisible Women event is an open invitation to talk, listen and learn about menopause.
