Edinburgh International Science Festival - Fuselab
EdSciFest need innovative and creative professionals - product designers, inventors, scientists, entrepreneurs, artists and engineers to help us deliver an out of this world experience for 16-20 year olds.
EdSciFest are looking for mentors to lead and deliver workshops, skills sessions and talks, and Makers to populate a hands-on skills shop in which participants will be able to design, prototype and test their ideas.
Fuselab is an immersive project in which 80 young people will
plan the future of an as yet uninhabited world, free from the
constraints of the systems and structures we live by here on Earth.
Delivered in two, four-day sessions at Edinburgh's Summerhall, the
experience is designed to engage with participants' creativity
equip them with the tools and techniques to bring their ideas to life. As a professional mentor you will guide these young innovators as they respond to challenges exploring ideas of habitat and connectivity (day 2) and sustenance (day 3), culminating in an intensive skills shop on day 4. Working with and alongside other creative professionals, Fuselab offers the opportunity to reinforce and expand your own networks while engaging with the creative minds that could become your colleagues of the future.

Call for Traders & Foodies / BOXSMALL at Nest
22 July - 19 August 2013
Submission Deadline: May 30th 2013 / Contact: email@example.com
BOXSMALL is part of a revolutionary new family entertainment space created by NEST Events. Situated on the roof terraces of Princes Mall, NEST will be adjacent to Princes Street and next to the Balmoral, having the best visibility in the City for the tourist/family market.
NEST is a self-contained entity comprising three exciting zones: BOXSMALL, PICNIC and BUBBLEPARC.
BOXSMALL is a series of contemporary cubic micro-stores, which will showcase the very best of Scottish products from delicious local food to cutting edge design, clothing and crafts in a refreshing new context.
Boxsmall is complemented by PICNIC, a bespoke eating space where visitors will be able to create their own picnic from a colourful collection of fresh food stalls, then relax on picnic rugs and deckchairs to enjoy the spectacular views.
The market and picnic areas will sit next to BUBBLEPARC - a futuristic area for children consisting of architecturally designed playhouses where they can jump into the sky in the BUNGYDOME or float inside a bubble in the Bubble Pod
The boxes are contemporary and inviting in their design and can be customized to suit each stall holders' requirements. The lofty upper box is divided into 16 compartments, which can be used to showcase products. The roof surface is translucent, and inside the entire box reflects the constantly changing Edinburgh sky. The fanned doors become display cabinets, affording the customers close contact with merchandise. The doors swing open for trading and close securely at night, this eliminates the need to set up and pack down every day.
