UnEarthed - explore the world at your feet

CEH scientists were among those taking part in NERC's UnEarthed showcase event at Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh in November 2017 (17th-19th). During the free event, families and adults explored the tools used to make science happen and saw the extraordinary work of our scientists. The CEH stands highlighted some of the research we undertake in Scotland including;

Air pollution and you!
Air pollution is bad but we often can't see it. Meet the scientists who see the unseen, look into the future and how you can help. Use science to make an air pollution rainbow butterfly to take home.

Loch Restoration
Take a look at these tanks full of creatures from our lochs and search through samples to find insect larvae, leeches and snails. Come face-to-face with an eel, meet our fish-spotting robot and see how healthy your favourite loch is.

Be a Puffin Scientist
Investigate nesting burrows to find a puffin looking after its egg and use a telescope to read seabird rings to find out which birds have survived the winter. Make puffin masks to take home.
