To celebrate Ireland’s National Science Week Mary Immaculate College in collaboration with Science Foundation Ireland and Limerick Institute of Technology are bringing STEM to Tipperary as part of the newly established ‘Tipperary Festival of Science’.

We have a wide variety of fun, engaging and inspiring events planned, for primary and second level school students and their teachers and events for the wider public. We have organised STEM Talks, STEM Interactive Shows, Debates, Film Screenings, Interactive STEM Workshops plus lots lots more.

Interactive Science Shows and workshops with local primary and second level schools are being organised in Tipperary. All these events aim to encourage young people to become engaged and interested in STEM and promote awareness and understanding of the importance and relevance of STEM to everyday life.

The aim of the public events planned are to stimulate interest, excitement and debate about STEM through accessible and entertaining interactions with the public and to engage and inspire people of all ages and backgrounds. The public events will reach a wide range of audiences including families, young people and adults (30-55), providing them with experiences of STEM that are fun and engaging and inspire curiosity.
