Science goes to the shops

THE Centre shopping complex in Livingston has been chosen to host events as part of this year’s Edinburgh International Science Festival.

A wind turbine and a bicycle simulator will be among the activities available between March 23 and April 7.

Dr Simon Gage, director of the festival, said “We are very much looking forward to ­coming to Livingston – this is the first time we’ve brought the Science Festival out of ­Edinburgh.”
