Getting Started

As part of the Dundee Science Festival embark on our Solar System Trail through the city of Dundee and follow the planets on this 4.5 km walk.

Have you ever wondered how far away the planets are from each other? So if we scaled the Earth right down into a size of a marble, you will walk the distance of the planets in our Solar System.

Starting at Dundee Science Centre, where you will find the Sun's QR code, scan each QR code on lamppost banners at various landmarks through the city centre, Dudhope Park and up to the Dundee Law.

Scan your first QR code anywhere along this route to get started.

Once you have scanned them all enter our Prize Draw!
