This year, the University of Limerick, Mary Immaculate College and Limerick Institute of Technology have come together to present a range of activities and experiences to celebrate the role of science in the lives of people in the Mid-West region. The three third level institutions in Limerick City will share their enthusiasm of science, engineering, technology and mathematics with everyone in the region - primary, secondary and college students, parents, teachers and anybody who wants to find out more about science in our everyday lives.
Science Week brings everyone together from children and adults, to scientists, engineers and technologists and is designed to spark curiosity, inspire imagination and unleash the potential that can help shape the future. The festival aims to challenge stereotypes so young people can see the diversity of people that work in STEM.
This year’s festival features a range of scientists and engineers from various backgrounds, ages, and disciplines. A variety of interactive talks, workshops, quizzes, cafe science and fun activities will take place across the week of the Festival.
The events are guaranteed to interest and intrigue! All events are free. Come along and get engaged!
