Then why not come along and try your hand at being an Environmental Detective at the Edinburgh International Science Festival.
Drop by and join us on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 April at Hawthornden Court, National Museum of Scotland from 10am to 5pm.
Join our investigative scientists to look at the importance of identifying pollutants and those responsible for causing pollution.
In a series of fun, hands-on experiments you’ll find out how we probe for pollutants, investigate bugs that tell us about water pollution and explore how microplastics can block the guts of water bugs and fish.
Hope we see you there.
