Excitement is building in Laois!

Every year we want the festival to ignite curiosity and let people discover that science and technology can offer amazing opportunities, often in ways that they may not realise. This year’s calendar of activity is bigger and better than ever. We are delighted to announce some of the key events which will take place in Laois this year including Dr Mindflip workshops, science fun with the Rediscovery Centre, exploring the archaeology of the Vikings with the National Museum of Ireland, Dublin zoo workshops, exciting science journey with Marty Jopson, the BBC One Show’s resident scientist and lots more.

Suzanne Carroll of Portlaoise Library said,

‘We are really pleased to once again be collaborating with the Midlands Science Festival team to deliver a range of exciting and innovative events in Laois during Science Week 2019. We want to continue to ensure that the library is more than just a place where people can borrow books. We want it to be a place where people can avail of free, informative talks and workshops in a friendly, community setting. The Midlands Science Festival provides plenty of opportunities for this across the region and in Laois we are looking forward to showcasing an educational outreach event from Dublin Zoo and exploring the secrets of Superhero Science in Portlaoise library but there are lots of other things happening so check out for more details on how you can celebrate science this November.’
