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 Dogs, The Neuroscience of Intimacy and our two Open Days will provide something new for 2017. 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!
