Science Week 2.0: Design Your Future unveiled as this year’s theme

20 years picScience Week 2.0: Design Your Future invites people of all ages to experience science first-hand – enjoy a science demonstration, seminar or show; have fun with a science experiment at home and discover the answers to the most curious science questions with friends and family. It is an opportunity to explore and experience the wonder of science.

In this the year of Irish Design, Science Week celebrates the deep connection between science and design. Medical devices, technological appliances and research apparatus demonstrate how closely these two fields are intertwined. Science Week 2.0: Design Your Future urges young people to actively ‘Design Your Future’ by engaging with science disciplines and embarking on exciting and fulfilling careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering or mathematics.

Coordinated by SFI Discover, the education and public engagement programme of Science Foundation Ireland, Science Week will run from 8th – 15th November 2015. The week-long festival will highlight how science, technology, engineering and mathematics are fundamental to everyday life, and demonstrate STEM’s importance to the future development of our society and economy. The annual festival of events, activities, demonstrations, talks and interactive shows is thanks to the collaborative work of volunteers, teachers, researchers, scientists and fans of the wonderful world of science. Communities all around Ireland – including schools, colleges, universities, research institutes, businesses and libraries – will take part in Science Week 2.0: Design Your Future.

The Midlands Science Festival will run throughout that week and we cant wait!
