The concept of work-life balance has become increasingly important as people strive to maintain a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle. Achieving balance can be difficult with challenges such as pressure to perform and over-commitment spilling into personal time. It is essential for reducing stress, improving mental health, and enhancing job satisfaction that we find solutions to these challenges. Practicing self-care activities such as exercise, meditation, or spending time with loved ones can contribute to a healthier work-life balance. By doing so, individuals can reduce stress, improve their overall well-being, and enhance their job satisfaction. While technology can sometimes be the cause of an imbalance, STEM can provide a host of practical and fulfilling solutions to the balance of well-being in the lives of humans in today’s world.  

The primary objective of Kerry Science Festival is to bring to light the intricate workings of STEM in supporting society, and to engage local and regional communities in a range of STEM-based activities and educational events that will inspire and showcase innovative solutions to these challenges. We promote curiosity and inclusivity with our range of technical, cultural and widely accessible activities open to the whole community.  

The festival also acknowledges the essential role of Arts in enhancing human health and well-being, hence the addition of "A" to STEM, creating STEAM. At the festival, we will exhibit a diverse range of impactful projects, led by natural and social scientists and engineers, all dedicated to improving our standard of living while simultaneously safeguarding our environment.
