In case you missed the 2020 Galway Science and Technology Virtual Festival Show, it is currently available to watch on our Youtube channel and it includes all the favourite presenters inspiring young people to love science and technology.  The show was broadcast live on the 22nd November, 2020 and hosted by Clara Murray and John Sharpson of RTE Jnr After School Hub with a very special message from our President, Michael D Higgins.

A whole family experience with lots of fun and exciting activities including Scientific Sue’s awesome ‘Bouncing Bubbles’  magic show, get up close and personal with tarantulas and pythons with the Bug Doctor AKA Dr Michel Dugon of NUI Galway, as he tells us all about his favourite bugs and spiders plus James Soper will teach us about the ‘Science of the Circus’ and you can learn how to juggle while he explains the forces of gravity.
