October and November are very busy months for us as we work with a whole host of schools, partners and providers to deliver to you a packed programme of events for Science Week. This year, the Midlands Science Festival will take place online. The team at Midlands Science have been busy over the past while upskilling in various digital platforms and educational approaches to make the online experience for all those attending as enjoyable as possible. The team would like to give a big thanks in particular to Maebh Coleman of TU Dublin who has provided much valuable input into the design and ethos of this year’s festival. Midlands Science hope that as many people as possible will take the opportunity to celebrate science with us just like we do every other year from November 7th – 15th.
CEO of Midlands Science, Jackie Gorman said,
‘In our planning for this year, we have co-created and pre-recorded events with our various speakers, worked with our brilliant workshop providers to ensure that events for all ages can still be accessed remotely and set about really creating a science festival with a difference for 2020. We feel that the online approach could give even more people access to informative public talks and live science shows than ever before, as we are often restricted by numbers and by events taking place in particular locations.’
As more and more online educational experiences and live-streamed events continue to find their place amidst the unprecedented worldwide disruption, the Midlands Science Festival will be open to everyone and we look forward to seeing you there soon.
