Galway Science & Technology Festival eExhibition

The Galway Science & Technology Festival is brining their amazing yearly Exhibition to a virtual experience. This production will be screened on YouTube and include your favourite presenters Sue McGrath with her fab bubbles, James Soper teaches you how to juggle and our very own Bug Doctor. There will be exercising and dancing and a big big surprise at the end, so do tune in.

The Galway Science & Technology Festival is Ireland's leading premier event for the education of children and the promotion of STEAM.

The Festival is now in its 23rd year – is a two-week celebration and promotion of STEAM, as part of SFI's National Science Week.

The 2020 Festival will be a virtual event with workshops going to every primary school in Galway city and county and workshops for TY students.  The 2020 Festival will culminate in a Virtual Festival Show to replace the annual Exhibition Day at NUI Galway.   The Show will be presented by John Sharpson and Clara Murray of RTE Jnr After School Hub and will include all the favourites of the Exhibition with a very special feature on the Science of Santa and maybe even some words of encouragement from Lapland.

The Festival has grown over the years to be the preeminent STEAM event in the West of Ireland, and a key feature on the national STEAM calendar.  The Festival is a collaboration of industry, education and local government and the support of these bodies allows the Festival to provide all events free to attend.

The main aim of the Festival is to nurture an interest in STEAM subjects from when students first start national school right up to when they are completing secondary school and considering applications to third-level study. It also aims to communicate widely to the general public on the relevance of STEAM to everyday lives and society. It is not to be missed.
