Embrace some Geek Chic – the Science Festival is in town!

This Saturday sees the start of the Edinburgh International Science Festival which returns to Ocean Terminal once more this year with InMotion.

This fascinating, interactive exhibition celebrates the science of human movement and performance in sport, technology and dance. It explores explores everything from comparing the strength and power of your muscles against that of elite athletes to the science and aesthetics of movement. It’s located on the ground floor of the centre, is completely free, and you can visit from 11am to 5pm every day from March 23 to April 7.

Of course, you’ll want a suitable outfit, so embrace your inner geek, and bring it to the fore with some ‘Geek Chic’ fashion – it’s a huge trend this year anyway!

Get your geek glasses on, mix print and patterns – stripes are excellent for this look- and invest in some Converse or some brogues. New Look’s Geek is the New Chic t-shirt is perfect with a flippy skirt, or some chinos. Don’t forget your satchel, and you can’t be a geek without a cardigan, can you?
