The Galway Science & Technology Festival has a very exciting school programme of events for 2021

This year’s Festival promises to be as exciting and engaging as ever.   The theme for National Science Week this year is ‘Creating our Future’ and we are working with all our sponsors and partners to ensure it is an exciting, fun filled two weeks of education, demonstrations, workshops, shows and talks with the aim to inspire young people to learn about this amazing world around us!

How can you get involved?

There are many ways that schools can get involved. We hope to offer all schools the opportunity to participate and we encourage schools to arrange your own STEM related events and share your photos and videos with us.

Primary Schools: We have made arrangements for a workshop for every primary school in Galway city & county.  Just register your interest by completing the online booking form in the primary school page.

Galway Atlantaquaria Video Series:  We are delighted to advise that we have come to an arrangement with Galway Atlantaquaria to allow access to all schools for the period of the Festival to their newly commissioned five video series.  Details to follow.

Superhero Talk:  Barry Fitzgerald will give a live link talk about all the students favourite Superheroes.

Secondary Schools:  We have a number of workshops for Transition Year Students and the opportunity to participate in our Career Stories series.  To make a booking please complete the booing form.   

The Career Stories series will continue to run throughout the Festival when we hear from young scientists and engineers that we hope will be really helpful when students are trying to decide on their choices for CAO.  To access the library of existing stories go to our YouTube channel 

We will email as more details become available.
