H is for Hidden Fossils

Today is the last day of our Science Scavenger Hunt and we hope you have enjoyed it!

Join us for a live quiz to see what you remember from the activities. Get the whole family together, come up with a team name, grab a pen and paper, and then tune in at 10am to test your knowledge. After the quiz don’t forget to share your scores with us on social media!

After the quiz we do have one more activity for you to do too. You can become fossil hunters!


Use this link to explore all the places where we have spotted fossils in the walls and pavements of Edinburgh.

Don’t worry if you don’t live in Edinburgh you can find fossils in buildings everywhere and there are some tricks to finding out where!
