Half way there…

We have just enjoyed another great day for the festival which took us to Offaly and Laois today for student workshops with TCD, a hospital talk in Tullamore for consultants with Sile Lane from Sense About Science (pho to), an alchemist café on diabetes and the brain, zoology talks, a visit from Ingenious Ireland and more!

Careers are the feature of the day tomorrow and we look forward to advice and insights in to the world of technology and innovation which will be delivered from companies such as Cpl Recruitment and Midlands based multinational technology firm Ericsson, who are also on board as a key partner to the 2014 Midlands Science Festival.

The ‘power of science’ is the theme of Science Week 2014. We see, hear, touch, taste and experience the wonder of science every day. From the electricity that lights and heats our homes, to smartphones that connect us to family and friends, to robots that carry out intricate surgery, and space technology that reveals the secrets of the cosmos – science empowers us to shape every aspect of our world. Thanks to the power of science we can improve our health and wellbeing, explore new worlds, and make our world a better place; the only limits are those we imagine.
