We recognise that science is a unique and valuable part of our culture and society. We passionately believe in the power of science to contribute to the development of the Midlands region and the importance of engaging with all members of our community in science through public engagement and outreach.
Science Communities was an outreach project run by Midlands Science in late 2021 that was funded by Science Foundation Ireland. Through a series of public forums, it provided a way for people to understand the scientific process, explore how evidence is generated and how we can use a scientific mindset to make decisions in our lives.
Dr. Dan Nickström and Midlands Science have joined forces to bring you some “Science at Home” videos. Tune in and learn about the science behind everyday objects in your own home. We’ll try to keep it lighthearted and entertaining for people of all ages, with a new object in each episode!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have supported our work to promote STEM education and skills in the midlands. We are working hand in hand with some of the most amazing speakers & performers to communicate the key message that science is all around us in everyday life & is a fantastic career option for young people to consider. Throughout the year we set out to show people from four years old upwards that science can be fun, inspiring & eye opening as well as educational & important for our region.

Midlands Science were simply wonderful in the way they supported a fantastic day of science for our students. We all learned lots about geology, our coastline and the fascinating jobs that people have in these areas. The various displays and demonstrations were perfectly pitched for our very receptive pupils. We really hope to have Midlands Science back again many more times in the future.
