Science Week kicked off this Saturday 11th and is running until 19th November.  It is a national celebration of Science with events taking place all across the country, and supported by Science Foundation Ireland.

Here in Kilkenny, Science week is coordinated by Calmast, the STEM Engagement centre in SETU.

There are events for all ages and interests, starting with a family fun day in Kilkenny Castle on Saturday November 11, featuring RTE’s Mark the Science guy, Dr Ken’s Circus show and Caroline Ainslie with her Bubbly Science Show.

Science Week is not just for Children –  there is an extensive adult programme too. The full programme for Kilkenny Science Festival with booking details available here
