The ever-popular Professor Egghead is back with a bang for 2014 at the award-winning Scottish Seabird Centre, with a brand new interactive live science show – and this year the themes of Homecoming and John Muir are in the spotlight.

During the Easter holidays, from April 5 to 21, every day at 2pm, visitors are invited to join Professor Egghead who is preparing for the adventure of a lifetime with the help of loyal friends Percy the puffin, Tommy the tern and Teresa the turtle.

With the same sense of adventure and curiosity as the renowned conservationist John Muir, Professor Egghead will follow the incredible journeys of Percy, Tommy and Teresa to discover what it takes to survive in the wild. Who has the toughest journey? Who faces the wildest adventures? Who will be crowned the champion of the sea?

Find out the answers to these questions and cheer on the Professor who will face many challenges in a mission to complete a John Muir Award in this brand new event.
