The Tipperary Festival of Science (TFS) has been delivering a diverse range of high quality STEM and STEAM workshops, shows, and events to the people of Tipperary since 2017.
The TFS has been well established and is now an eagerly anticipated festival for teachers, families, children, and adults in a very low intervention area of the country. Tipperary has not traditionally had a strong engagement with STEM, with limited access to STEM engagement and outreach activities throughout the year. The TFS provides something for everyone, that is through accessible, open events, offering something new and interesting through easy to understand talks and workshops that are relevant to everyday life and to every participant.
The TFS is managed and delivered by Mary Immaculate College in collaboration with Science Foundation Ireland and Limerick Institute of Technology through arranging events with a wide range of collaborators in a variety of venues across Tipperary i.e. in higher education institutions, schools, libraries, theatres, youth clubs, art galleries, retail spaces, industry etc.
