Once again, the University of Limerick, Mary Immaculate College and Limerick Institute of Technology have joined 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 for science, technology engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) with everyone in the region.

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. Our festival aims to challenge stereotypes so young people can see the diversity of people that work in STEAM.

This year’s festival features a range of scientists and engineers from various backgrounds, ages, and disciplines. A variety of interactive talks, workshops, quizzes, competitions, cafe science and fun activities will take place across Limerick City & County and County Clare during the week of the Festival.

The events are guaranteed to interest and intrigue! All events are free. Come along and get engaged!
