Science Week is Coming!!

Science Week is coming, and we are getting ready!! This year, we are delighted to be back in person and look forward to seeing you all again. We have a huge range of activities for all age groups. We will be kicking off with our Discovery Day in association with Integra in Sacred Heart Secondary School, Tullamore on November 12th. This family friendly event will include dinosaurs, superhero science, chemistry experiments and much more. The week will include workshops for primary and secondary schools and a range of activities for all age groups. These include an event exploring the science of pets with Pete the Vet, in association with Zoetis. Have a question about your furry friend, come along and ask Ireland’s most popular vet a question!

We have a great event for a Friday night in Dead Centre Brewing in Athlone, exploring the science of beer and brewing. Feel like a swim in November? Join us at Lough Ree on Sunday November 13th, for a swim with Swim Ireland and a talk on the science of swimming with some hot refreshments after your swim. Dr Andrew Magee will be talking about the science of resilience and Brian Gibson of Forensic Science Ireland will be talking about the science of solving crime. There is literally something for every age group!! Our online event exploring the science of F1 Racing includes the chance to win a day in the pit with a race team at Mondello Park. Ans there’s much more to come, so keep an eye on our site for updates and register as soon as you can.
