As the upcoming Midlands Science Festival and national Science Week grow closer, we are gearing up to provide an array of incredible events and science fun the Midlands.
The festival which begins on November 9th, celebrates science in the region with hands-on workshops and interactive demonstrations for people of all ages.
Jackie Gorman, Director of the Midlands Science Festival said,
‘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 Waterways Ireland and 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.’
