Running since 1965 this annual exhibition of science projects has become and important fixture in the calendar for secondary school (high school) students from all over Ireland, but is just as popular with the public who each year are treated to a cornucopia of displays covering all aspects and fields of science.
With over 500 projects on display, in categories which include Chemical, Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Biological and Ecological Sciences, Social and Behavioural Sciences and Technology there is something to catch the interest of everyone.
Many of the projects are of a very high standard indeed, with original research and innovation invariably the hallmark of the major prize winners. Previous winners have gone on to win international accolades and in many cases to forge successful careers at the forefront of the sciences.
It’s not all work though, as this image shows, there is a packed programme of entertainment and social events too.
Date and details for 2022 subject to confirmation.
