Science Foundation Ireland is encouraging people to get involved with the nationwide celebrations of Irish science and technology during Science Week 2016, from the 13th to the 20th of November.
Hundreds of science-themed events are being held nationwide to celebrate the 21st annual Science Week For a full list of the thrilling science shows, hands-on workshops and talks across the country visit the Science Week website.
Regional science festivals are being held across the country during Science Week, in Cork, Kerry, Sligo, Limerick, Galway, Mayo, Cavan/Monaghan and the Midlands.
Dr Ruth Freeman, Director of Strategy and Communications at Science Foundation Ireland and said; “Science Week is a wonderful opportunity to explore the world of science and technology around us. Taking science out of the classroom and highlighting how it impacts and transforms the world allows people to become fascinated with the wonders of science in the everyday. This year we have lots of events that will allow you to explore the science behind your coffee in the morning; how athletes reach their ‘Peak Performance’; how we can all sleep better and; whether Shakespeare can ‘Make you fall in Love’! I would encourage everyone to take part in any of the hundreds of events happening nationwide and be dazzled by the advancements and discoveries that have been made by the Irish scientific community.”
