On the same wavelength – South East Science Festival kicks off in Kilkenny

The South East Science Festival takes place across Kilkenny over the next ten days as a part of National Science Week.

The festival brings top scientists and science presenters from Ireland and abroad to primary and secondary students in Kilkenny and across the region.

Last year, more than 12,000 students participated in over 100 events across the South East. This year’s local events will take place in Kilkenny City and Graiguenamanagh.

The festival is coordinated by Calmast, Waterford Institute of Technology’s STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) Engagement Centre with support from Science Foundation Ireland, Kilkenny County Council, Waterford County Council, MSD, GSK, B+L, Eirgen, Sanofi and Lismore Heritage Centre.

The highlights of the festival in Kilkenny include Glorious Blood from the London Science Museum, aimed at older kids, and Bubbly Science, which will keep the young children enthralled.

Cordula Weiss, Manager at Calmast, says: “There is something for everyone: activities for schools, afternoon shows for families and evening events for the general public.

“The festival aims to inspire young and old to engage with science and technology, inspire and develop curiosity, while also showcasing the opportunities in the region – such as the many possibilities that WIT and local companies offer to those considering a career in science.”

“This year’s programme includes a large variety of events – from bubble shows for the younger ones, to talks about climate change, the importance of trees, and the advances in smart agriculture.”

The full programme is available on www.calmast.ie and can also be accessed on facebook: @CalmastSTEMHub.
