Open Day announced

We're having an open day in Edinburgh! Hiphiphoorah!



It happens every year as part of Edinburgh's Doors Open Days but i'm so excited because this will be my first as a member of the Edinburgh staff! 

Today was our first meeting about the planned events, activities and talks. One of the most interesting meetings i may have been too... not often you get to discuss setting up swimming pools in your office but i'll come to that later! Overall i think it's going to shape up to be a pretty cool day, all the staff do this on their own time and it's always a success because we're a passionate bunch! So staff and visitors are in for a treat, after all who doesn't love an excuse to indulge in anamatronic dinosaurs, fossils, 3D goggles, gold panning, bearded geologists and rocks!!

I have to say i think the highlight may well be the Marine teams epic idea....  They're going to set up a swimming pool (in their corridor!) to demonstrate how they use Eric- our aquatic ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle). The best bit is they're handing over the controls so visitors (and no doubt staff!) can all search for treasure hidden in the pool!!

I can't wait hahaha Ony 67 days to go ;)

More details on our website and facebook. Keep checking back for updates as the plans progress.
