Curious Edinburgh, a new proof of concept mobile app enabling you to explore the history of science in Edinburgh, has been released on the iOS App store and will be shared with researchers as part of University of Edinburgh Science Studies Unit 50th Anniversary celebrations this week.

The app and accompanying website are the result of a short AHRC and University of Edinburgh Innovation Initiative Grant funded project, led by Niki Vermeulen, Lecturer in history/sociology of science at the University of Edinburgh School of Social and Political Sciences. EDINA have been a technical partner in this project, working closely with Niki and Cultural Engagement Research Fellow Bill Jenkins to bring their research and app content to life on the web and in this proof of concept app for iPhone and iPad.

Curious Edinburgh is part of the Engaging Edinburgh group of AHRC Community Engagement projects, and is powered by Edinburgh CityScope, a project of the Centre for Science Education at the University of Edinburgh in which EDINA is also a partner.

The Curious Edinburgh team welcome feedback on the app and website via comments on the site, Twitter (with the hashtag #curiousedinburgh), or via email to the EDINA helpdesk (edina@ed.ac.uk).
