WexSci, Wexford Science Festival promotes science, technology, engineering, arts and maths (STEAM) in Co. Wexford.
The Festival is led by Wexford County Council in partnership with I.T Carlow, WIT, Waterford Wexford ETB, EPA, BIM and funded by SFI. A two-week festival is planned, with events in libraries, community and family resource centres, in schools and colleges, The County Council Buildings, and the National Opera House. Events will be fun and engaging, with something to interest people of all ages and knowledge.
Wexford has been identified by research from SFI as a low intervention county in terms of STEM participation. With this in mind, we have developed a festival programme to stimulate interest and debate about STEM. Our aim at WexSci is to encourage people to engage with science in a fun and interactive way. We want to talk to the amateur and the professional, the curious and all wishing to follow a career in science. We hope to engage and inspire people of all ages, and to promote awareness and understanding of the importance and relevance of STEM to everyday life.
The highlight of the festival is the WexSci Science Showcase, taking place at Wexford County Council and the National Opera House on Saturday 16th November from 10:30am to 4pm. A curated selection of events will deliver great STEM learning opportunities for all ages and abilities. There is something for everyone at WexSci, do take part, and bring your family and friends.
We look forward to meeting you and we hope you enjoy the festival - WexSci Wexford Science Festival Steering Committee.
