Picking up The Naughton Foundation Award

We were delighted to recently receive an award from The Naughton Foundation at Trinity College Dublin. This award was presented to Midlands Science by Minister for Finance Paschal Donohoe, TD. Dr Craig Slattery, Chairperson of Midlands Science commented “support from The Naughton Foundation will assist Midlands Science in the delivery of a number of STEM outreach activities in the midlands and we look forward to working with them. We are most grateful to them for their strong interest in STEM education and skills in the region.”

The Naughton Foundation was established by Martin and Carmel Naughton in 1994. It is a private family foundation and its goal is to support worthwhile causes in the arts and education. Midlands Science undertakes a range of outreach activities throughout the year in the midlands promoting science, technology, engineering and maths through school workshops, public events and a regional science festival. It is supported by Science Foundation Ireland, The Ireland Funds, The Social Innovation Fund of Ireland and a range of project partners. It is managed by a voluntary board of trustees which includes representatives from industry, education and research.
