Some Event Highlights
Starting with younger audiences, we have plenty of events planned for our mini-scientists such as visits from Famelab, Rediscovery Centre, Marine Dimensions, Go Fly your Kite and the Junior Einsteins Science Club for some fun experiments, messy ‘make & do’, quizzes & more! We are also delighted to welcome back the Reptile Zoo Village, where pupils will have the opportunity to pet a snake or a large spider if that is their desire!
The Science of Sleep, Secret Lives of Ravens and Crows & our Science Skills & Careers Breakfast will provide something new for 2016. Throughout the week, we will also have several presentations from key people working in different science fields & we will host a number of science & technology career’s workshops with key academic partners for 2nd level students.
This is just a taste of what we have lined up & we look forward to revealing our full programme of over 100 Science Week events very soon, so watch this page for more!
