Science week

Morgan Mckinley's plans for Science week

Science week takes place from the 10th – 17th of November, and all over Ireland, we’ve got a number of exciting activities lined up to celebrate. Science week has been successfully running for the past 24 years and is an excellent opportunity to have some fun and learn something new. The Science Week programme includes workshops, science shows, talks, laboratory demonstrations, science walks and other science-related events. 

The Science industry is booming in Ireland at the moment, with the continued expansion of many large companies within the pharmaceutical industry. With this continued growth, there is increased demand for Science professionals within the various disciplines. It’s never been a better time to get involved in all thing’s science.

Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) brought in science week which helps the public to gain information on the industry as well as giving people a taster for science in both an industrious and domestic way. 

Some upcoming events include:

  • STEAM Programme – Kildare – 10th November

This event includes Dinosaur Science/Pedal Power Lab/Mad Professor Science Show/Connecting Science and Nature

  • Celebrate Science Open Day – Cork – 10th November 

Family festival with various different talks, demonstrations and workshops that everyone can enjoy

  • Climate change and flooding – Kerry – 11th November

Some tips and tricks on what we can do to help

  • Poster competition - Tipperary – 11th November 

Students get a chance to submit posters with the theme of climate change

  • Titan II – Galway – 11th November 

Titan II, a 35-tonne interactive truck, brings innovation to life by providing a hands-on experience of engineering and technology used in industry today. 

  • Climate Superheroes at Imaginosity – Dublin – 11th November

An exciting chance to take part in Superhero training, which helps investigate all the ways in which we can help save our planet and become qualified “Climate Superheroes”

Science Week 2019 will focus on climate action, seeking to help people understand climate change, how science and technology can help us create a positive climate future and the impact we as individuals can have on climate change. While one person may feel like they can’t do enough to make an impact, collaboratively we can make the effort to offset our emissions. 

Morgan McKinley are delighted to support Science Week and will be taking part in some of the fun activities throughout the week.  Take this opportunity to get out there, get involved and have some fun!
