Edinburgh Zoo has worked in collaboration with Heriot-Watt Engage and ESRIC in previous years, inlcuding the Explorathon event in 2015. In 2016 we were lucky enough to be involved in the Edinburgh Zoo Nights event in June where we got to talk to adults about the research we do on a more general scale. The Heriot-Watt Engage Smartphone Microscopes and Enlightenment images generated through the Enlightenment Project were a huge hit with the visitors and it was a great opportunity to relay to the general public how the work we do translates into the clinical setting and day-to-day news.
